Anita Jeram is the acclaimed illustrator of the bestselling picture book Guess How Much I Love You which has sold more than 18 million copies worldwide.From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-3?A perky tribute to the furry little creatures with shoe-button eyes. Pleasantly informative tidbits on their history, care, and feeding may well encourage readers to try a guinea pig as a pet. Those who decide to acquire one will want a more in-depth treatment such as Mark Evans's Guinea Pigs (Dorling Kindersley, 1992), but King-Smith's title makes the perfect introduction to the lovable animals. Jeram's line-and-watercolor illustrations transform fuzzy lumps into curious, cuddly, thoroughly engaging creatures. This title is a cheerful, chatty read-aloud that can stand on its own or be linked with units on pets, mammals, rodents, or other series' entries. It's an absolute must for libraries and homes with resident rodents.?Jody McCoy, Casady School, Oklahoma City
