I’ve been doing this book thing for a long, long time. Here’s the proof: How to Care for a Guinea Pig.


Some of the advice in this book is, um, dubious, but overall it’s a pretty thorough catalogue of everything I knew about guinea pigs when I was nine.

Albino Guinea Pigs have white fur and red eyes. The reason thier eyes are red is because thier eyes really don’t have any color at all so yo look right through them and everyone hold your breath! You can look at the back of the eye! Albinos are not the only guinea pigs with red eyes but I am just telling you.

  1. Oh, geesh, I have one tied together with wool called “Friends and Enemies From Beyond” that was a collection of the ghost stories my grandmother used to tell me. LOL

  2. I’d like to point out that this book was not made for a school assignment. It was a spontaneous outpouring of telling-people-what-to-do.

  3. That is so cool!

    I love the acknowledgements. “No thanks to Nicky Levine, whose responsibility is that this book is so delicate , AND TORN!” I think more authors should include “no thanks to …” lines in their books.
