Overview

"There is no Christmas - at our house

There are no lights and no tree

There is no Christmas - at our house

No Christmas for Teddy and me." -Pip

"There is no Christmas at our house.

Amelia stole it and shoved it up the chimney." -Teddy

NO CHRISTMAS?! What is going on in the Fisher's garage apartment? Where is Christmas? Why does Pip write grumpy songs? Why does Amelia have a phone in her ear all the time? Who is Sunny,
and why is Amelia's sister, Evelyn, around so much? But, most important of all, why, days before
Christmas, is Molly in the interrogation chair being questioned about Amelia's cancelled wedding?

The Best Friends Club gathers to brainstorm; thinking back over several days in order to figure out where things went wrong. Will they be able to save the wedding? Will they be able to bring
Christmas to Teddy and Pip?

A Tale of Two Guinea Pigs ended with a wedding to look forward to. Though Teddy and Pip were a bit nervous about the concept of their best friends traveling to the moon after the ceremony, they were happy as two talking guinea pigs could be. All was well. Their best friends were all together,
and a 'family they would be'.

They had no idea (and how could they?) that Amelia, the very Amelia who was their best friend,
would transform from her quiet writer self into a bride monster called Bridezilla and turn their world upside down all over again.

Molly Jane Fisher, fourth grade detective, finds herself right in the middle of a mystery again. But this time, she truly is an innocent bystander. At least she is pretty sure that this is true. Even if she knew how, she would never have cancelled Amelia and Wally's wedding. For one thing, she wanted them to get married, for another, she would be in so much trouble, but most important of all-she has no idea how to do such a thing anyway. For some reason, though, Amelia, Mom and that scary sister, Evelyn, believed that Molly had done something to cause all of the chaos. And that bad evidence has landed her in the interrogation chair.

The Bridezilla Who Stole Christmas is a fun story for the Holidays and comes complete with cute talking guinea pigs, new 'bad guys', a puzzle to solve, new songs to sing, and plenty of laughs as
Teddy and Pip loudly express opinions on everything from cell phones to lack of Christmas to longstanding traditions such as hanging stockings by the fireplace.

LISA MADDOCK, author of A Tale of Two Guinea Pigs, lives in Shakopee, Minnesota (a southwest suburb of Minneapolis) with her husband Bill, daughter Allison, four pampered guinea pigs named Maggie, Peanut, Mimi and Miranda... and a little white mouse with big black spots named Aurora Marie Borealis-Maddock.

As the sequel to A Tale of Two Guinea Pigs, I found this story to be as adorable, hilarious, and entertaining as the first! The two lovable guinea pigs, Teddy and Pip, find themselves in the worst of times once again now that their beloved friend, Amelia, is having trouble organizing her wedding. Missing the attention she used to give them, Teddy and Pip try to find a way to keep Amelia from turning into a 'Bridezilla' and end up doing a few naughty things to save the day. Detective Molly Jane Fisher begins this new case when she finds herself being interrogated over Amelia's canceled wedding and uses clues and flashbacks to figure out just who canceled the wedding and why. I thought this story was just as good as the first! The emotions and reactions of the characters were all very believable and relatable even in the unbelievable situation of being with talking guinea pigs. Readers will definitely be able to relate to Molly as she uses the clues and her head to solve the mystery and help Teddy, Pip, Amelia, and Wally. Some parts of the story, such as when Molly attempts to read stories about Christmas and 'scary reindeer' to the guinea pigs, had me laughing and grinning throughout the story. I would definitely recommend this book to any young readers who love animals!

It is funny, adorable and well written mystery book for children! I very much enjoyed reading it and discovering the secret about a cancelled wedding and a universally known truth that all things in the human world go much smoother when guinea pigs get involved. At the heart of this mystery is a nine year old girl Molly and two charming talking guinea pigs Pip and Teddy. In my opinion this book is a "must have" for all children with guinea pig pets and maybe even for busy adults like me who would love to have a couple of talking guinea pigs to chat with over a daily cup of tea, but first need to buy a machine for extending the amount of hours in a day from 24 to infinity, so I can join Pip and Teddy for a happy singing hour... I know, the last part of my review does not make any sense, but reading this book just makes me happy, so Merry Christmas, Peace on Earth, and Pip and Teddy to everyone!
