Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Long hair, short hair, brown and white, tan and black, striped or not, these endearing creatures come in thousands of combinations. Yes they are rodents, but as Dick King-Smith says "They're so chunky and chubby and cuddly..." and anyone who has had a guinea pig knows that they make great pets. His love of these little creatures comes through in the text and is delightfully illustrated in watercolors by Anita Jeram. Lots of facts interspersed on the pages round out one of the bright new offerings in the "Read and Wonder" series. 1997 (orig.
From The Critics
Here's another delightfully informative book from the Candlewick Press "Read and Wonder" series. Whimsical watercolors portray guinea pigs in all their "amiable chunkiness." Guinea pig owners simply must have this book. Part of the "Read And Wonder" series. 2001, Candlewick Paperbacks, $5.99. Ages 3 to 8. Reviewer: S. Kleven SOURCE: Parent Council, September 2001 (Vol. 9, No. 1)
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-A perky tribute to the furry little creatures with shoe-button eyes. Pleasantly informative tidbits on their history, care, and feeding may well encourage readers to try a guinea pig as a pet. Those who decide to acquire one will want a more in-depth treatment such as Mark Evans's Guinea Pigs (Dorling Kindersley, 1992), but King-Smith's title makes the perfect introduction to the lovable animals. Jeram's line-and-watercolor illustrations transform fuzzy lumps into curious, cuddly, thoroughly engaging creatures. This title is a cheerful, chatty read-aloud that can stand on its own or be linked with units on pets, mammals, rodents, or other series' entries. It's an absolute must for libraries and homes with resident rodents.-Jody McCoy, Casady School, Oklahoma City

    WARM, TOUCHING BOOK ABOUT BELOVED PETS

    Anyone who is an animal lover will appreciate this book. Children respond beautifully to its tender-hearted text and brilliant illustrations. As a teacher with guinea pigs as class pets, this book has been a wonderful way to introduce the pets to the class. Most importantly, it is a perfect example of loving and appreciating even the tiniest living things.
