About Once Upon a Weasel

The story is a fanciful tale of a misfit boy who yearns to travel into outer space. On a whim, the boy buys a pet weasel who sparks his imagination and helps bring his space fantasies to life. Back on planet Earth, problems arise when the weasel escapes during a class field trip and turns an entire science museum upside down. In trouble with his parents, the boy must figure out how to make things right—and how to hold onto the pet he loves so much.
