Editorial Reviews

"The pastel-and-colored-pencil illustrations are very successful in depicting the characters, particularly the endearing little animal with a variety of facial expressions. . . . Through simple text and engaging artwork, Berenzy shows the proper set-up of a guinea-pig cage, what foods are best for these creatures, and how responsive they are to humans. This book will find an audience in the many classrooms that have pets." -School Library Journal"Guinea pigs are popular classroom pets, so many kids will identify with the experience of the students in Ms. B's class. . . . a particularly satisfying ending." -Booklist"Sammy, with his pink smile, floppy ears, and inquisitive nose, looks so lifelike that he almost waddles off the page." -Publishers Weekly
