This collection features books 1-3 of Patrick
Jennings’ popular Guinea Dog series:
Rufus has been dreaming of getting a dog. His best friend
has one. His worst friend has one. But his dad has a few objections: They
whine; they gnaw; they bark. they scratch; they beg; they drool.
Rufus pays no attention when his mom offers her
think-outside-the-box suggestion, because she can’t be serious. She can’t be.
She can be. And she actually comes home with a guinea pig.
And if Rufus’ dad thinks dogs are a problem, he won’t know what hit him when he
meets the Guinea Pig that Thinks She’s a Dog. She barks. She bites. She’ll eat
Guinea Dog 2
When his classmates learn about Fido, the guinea pig that
acts like a dog, they all want a piece of Rufus, her owner. But Rufus hates the
attention, the demands, the “celebrity.” So he decides to make Fido learn how
to be an actual guinea pig. But when she goes missing, he feels terrible. Was
she lost, “dognapped,” or did she run away, because he no longer liked her just
the way she was?
Offering the same offbeat humor and pacing of the first
Guinea Dog, this novel will prove to be a listener’s best friend.
Guinea Dog 3
When Rufus, Murphy, Lurena, and their pets go camping, they
meet Pedro, a shy boy who seems afraid of just about everything—especially the
water. One thing leads to another and the kids go into a nearby town to buy him
a pet to cheer him up—a guinea pig, naturally. Yet what they bring home may
look like a guinea pig, but it can swim—like an otter!
