About the Book

When a baby boa constrictor is born at a pet shop, the owner is pleased because people love watching boas feed. But THIS boa is different. When the pet store owner gives him a mouse for dinner, the boa won’t squeeze, he’d rather befriend the mouse. The pet store owner thinks he can’t sell a boa who won’t eat in the usual fashion, so he calls the boa strange and sends him off to the zoo.

At the zoo, the boa is first fed a pig, then a rabbit. Boa hides his friends at first, but soon the truth is discovered. When the zookeeper finds a few too many animals living in the boa’s pen, what will he do? In the end, the boa must stand up for his friends and admit to his own gentle nature, no matter what anyone thinks. The boa must be himself to be happy.

Look for more of Boa’s friends and their adventures in upcoming books!
