Funny, and a little wise. This smart, sweet and slightly self-important guinea pig almost makes me want to have one of my own.

Utterly charming! A guinea pig with attitude paired with a masterful illustrator.

Tall-tale telling guinea pig Olga De Polgais a fun companion for a tweeny afternoon, but her exploits sometimes get her in trouble. Still, she's irrepressible.
