Come meet Theodore: a plump, fuzzy guinea pig with a big appetite, a lot to say, and a personality all his own. As you, and his new owner, get to know him, you''ll find out what he eats and how he speaks. You''ll also discover the work involved in caring for a pet: feeding, cleaning, and taking him out for exercise. But it hardly seems like work once your pet becomes your best friend. With the popularity of guinea pigs as family and classroom pets, Theodore''s antics are sure to ring true to many readers. And for those who haven''t had a guinea pig of their own, these short, funny, and accessible poems will create a vivid first impression.
