Editorial Reviews

"Like a comfortable armchair upon which you might read one of these tiny masterpieces, the success of the series--and let there be no doubt that it is a triumph--rests on four points: the iconic but charming literature upon which each book is based; the unwavering cuteness of the guinea pigs; the delightful styling of each photograph with costumes by Newall; the sparse brevity of Goodwin's adaptations that preserve the essence, the aesthetic, and the language of the original." - Los Angeles Review of Books"A sweet take on Shakespeare's tragic love story . . . Fully illustrated with guinea pigs in costumes worthy of The Globe Theatre in London, this book is definitely not one to miss." - BookTrib"We thought Pride & Prejudice couldn't get much better--then we saw lines from Jane Austen's classic novel paired with some seriously dapper rodents." - EW.com, on A GUINEA PIG PRIDE & PREJUDICE"This may be the definitive version of Pride and Prejudice. If they could get War and Peace down to this length, it would be a service to mankind." - Salman Rushdie, on A GUINEA PIG PRIDE & PREJUDICE"An entirely new, adorably hilarious take on the classic story . . . This affectionate, quietly dramatic homage is the perfect gift for Austen-philes, Austen-newbies, guinea-pig aficionados and anyone who appreciates a tale well told." - BookPage, on A GUINEA PIG PRIDE & PREJUDICE
