Miss Summer has a special treat for Eliza’s kindergarten class—a new pet guinea pig that the kids name Cookie. But Eliza doesn’t like this kind of cookie: "A cookie with teeth?" Eliza thinks. She knows that people eat chocolate chip cookies. But do chocolate chip cookies ever eat people? Child-friendly illustrations using acrylic paint by Nancy Speir add charm and appeal as Eliza overcomes her fear and makes friends with Cookie. This is the perfect book for those kids who feel squeamish around new pets.
