Can a pet weasel be trained? When Mom and Pop impose rules on our young boy and his pet Weasel, That’s the question our young Boy asks himself as Mom and Pop grow exasperated by the disruption the Boy’s pet Weasel causes around the house. The Boy decides to tame the creature by taking him to obedience school, where he meets a number of kids with unusual animals, including a young girl with an iguana. His attempts to train the pet give the Boy a greater understanding of his uniquely wild, wild Weasel—plus a chance to make a new friend or two along the way.
