Oh, this one reminds me of a family I nannied for. They had two guinea pigs who trained me well. Every time they sensed my presence they would squeel like crazy until I fed them. The children would hitch them up to wagons made out of shoeboxes and race them down the hall. Sadly, I was also there when one of the guinea pigs died. Pets can be so important to the emotional development of children!

Great review, y’all! My eight year old reads this one over and over, too. He just loves it. The poems and the illustrations work really well together; I agree!
