Great Big Guinea Pigs

(2006) Bloomsbury Children’s Books


• A Junior Library Guild Selection

“Thanks to the snappy dialogue, this is catalogued as fiction, but it is full of factual information…Roth produces her typically super collage art made of torn papers. She manages to make her guinea pigs look equally adorable (in the present) and ferocious (in the past.)” - starred review, Booklist

“Fun to read and visually engaging, the book also presents fascinating information based on recent scientific discoveries. . . . The idea of introducing prehistoric mammals within a bedtime tale is original and highly successful.” - School Library Journal

“Choice of the familiar household pet to teach a little science, the delightful art and the not-so-unusual bedtime stall, make this enormously attractive to young readers.” - Kirkus Reviews

“Super collage art.” - Booklist
