About the Author
Although parents are typically the ones who introduce their children to new experiences, author Wanda L. Curran first gained interest in guinea pigs (cavies) when her daughter Nancy joined 4-H and developed a successful and prosperous hobby. Curran then became an adult 4-H leader in guinea pigs and rabbits and was inspired to write the book Your Guinea Pig. She is a member of the Golden State Cavy Breeders Association, the American Cavy Breeders Association, and the Oroville, Downtown Oroville, and Trendsetters 4-H Community Clubs. She lives in Oroville, California, with her husband John.

I love the books/bulletins that the Storey company provides. They are inexpensive and they are loaded with information. I have many on other subjects. This one about guinea pigs is very helpful in explaining feeding, housing and all around care for a cavy. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to have a wonderful pet, the guinea pig. Great book to start out with for cavies and on any subject too.
This book is very well written and full of helpful facts. It has a variety of different information. And a pleasure to read. This book definitly helped me make my final decision on getting one of these adorable little pets.
