Fuzzy and Zsa Zsa are guinea pigs who live with their kindly owners, Ben and Henrietta Bliss. Zsa Zsa likes to spend her days pampering herself and listening to harp concertos. Fuzzy is much more down to earth - he is a passionate cook who wants nothing more than to learn to make delicious meals for Ben and Henrietta... So when Fuzzy spots an ad run by glamorous local chef Scarlet Cleaver stating Guinea Pigs Wanted, he is enormously excited - what a chance to learn some cooking skills! Zsa Zsa warns him that the ad is not what he thinks, but he won't listen; when she's not looking, he sneaks off to find the restaurant. And so Zsa Zsa has to get online to try track Fuzzy down. But when Micespace reveals that guinea pigs from all over town have been taken away in a van by Scarlet Cleaver herself, Zsa Zsa must set off on a rescue mission to prevent Fuzzy from ending up as main course on The Meat Cleaver's menu!.… (mehr)

Anyone who loves guinea pigs will be able to relate to this fun story.

Fuzzy, Coco and Eduardo must defeat the guinea pigs equivalent of Cruella de Ville, Scarlet Cleaver.

While the opening is positive and involves adopting from rescue I was concerned that the piggy next door appears to be used for back to back breeding to supply pet shops not a message we want to give to young readers. ( )

I would never have thought of using guinea pigs to teach online safety, and I have to admit I still don't think it's particularly efficacious, but it sure is fun!

Fuzzy and Coco are best friends (no, not that kind of friends! There will be no baby guinea pigs) even though Fuzzy's attempts to cook annoy Coco and Coco's insistence that she used to live in the palace and knows the queen annoy Fuzzy. But then they have a quarrel, a really bad one. And Fuzzy is missing! Coco will have to learn how to Go Online and get some help from other guinea pigs before she can save Fuzzy, reunite with the queen, and crush the sinister plans of Scarlet Cleaver, who is looking for guinea pigs to test out her new restaurant...or maybe to test out something else!

This reminds me of Michael Bond's Olga da Polga stories. Not that anybody knows them anymore (sigh) but they feature a delightful guinea pig with an independent mind and a penchant for storytelling. These guinea pigs are much more contemporary of course, and they actually go on adventures instead of just imagining them. The story is wacky and silly and rather British, but I can still see kids who are just getting into chapters really getting into this one.

Verdict: A little longer than an average beginning chapter book (almost 200 pages) the bold print and illustrations will encourage beginning chapter readers to tackle this one. I thought the online safety tips at the end were kind of superfluous - it's hard to see kids extrapolating from a nonsense story about a guinea pig to their own online experience, but it's a fun added touch. Not a necessary purchase perhaps, but fun to add if you have the budget and lots of beginning chapter readers.
