Summary

Guinea Dog:

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's 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 your homework.

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!

Guinea Dog has appeared not only on many state lists, but on county and school district lists as well. Here are just some of its appearances: Hawaii NeNe Award Nominee, Washington State Sasquatch Award Nominee, Massachusetts Children's Book Award Honor, Florida Sunshine State Master List, Kansas Winner of the William Allen White Award and Colorado Children's Book Award Nominee.

Guinea Dog

This story is brilliant but the way it is preformed is really off and it needs more expression it really lacked expression get a grip this is audible I have very high expectations

So if that gets better everything turns to 5 stars

Entertaining for 9 yo and mom too!

My son LOVES these books. Even though he has read them more than once, he still loves listening to the audiobook in the car or before bed. I find them thoroughly entertaining as well, and the narrator is very good. Light-hearted, funny story, but still touches on some great themes for kids. Especially in the 3rd-5th grade range. Great for any kid who loves animals, but doesn't want the heart-wrenching coming of age themes often involved with animal stores at this level.

Great Story; Great Reader

My daughter had read this many, MANY times from ages 6-8. This was undoubtedly a fantastic purchase.
