A second title about the four guinea pig sisters and their pesky little brother, Snuffler.
'Guinea Pigs Go To Sea' is the follow up to 'Guinea Pigs on the Go', only this time they are in a nautical mood. Snuffler is the youngest, and the only boy, in a family of five guinea pigs. He is Mummy’s favourite and, of course, a pain! The four girls all try and get rid of him at every opportunity. In this title, Snuffler wants to go swimming and the girls are sent down to the water’s edge to keep an eye on Snuffler. But naughty Snuffler, with his arm-bands and rubber ball floats a little too far away from the shore and gets friendly with a fish… a very large fish…. is it a shark? No, it’s a sword fish who punctures Snuffler’s beach ball which propels him zoomingly to shore and safety. Meanwhile the girls are paddling out to meet him on Mum’s lilo.. An everyday adventure on the beach for these five little guinea pigs [NB the guinea pigs are all wearing armbands, but this will serve as a reminder to parents, that they shouldn’t let their children out of their sight anywhere near the sea.]
