I understand it may have "KIDS" in the title it is a good book for kids. BUT if you don't have kids or wants to suprise your kids or you are just wanting to read about guinea pigs it is good for all that as well as a great book for adults and older kids.

As a 4-H leader I have found this to be the best book available on all aspects of raising guinea pigs (cavies). Especially helpful are the chapters on showing and showmanship. The book is clear enough for children but comprehensive enough for all ages. The pictures, charts, and diagrams are excellent. I recommend it whole-heartedly to both novice and experienced guinea pig owners.
