Little guinea pig's favorite TV show is Super Guinea Pig. He loves it so much that when his friends (a dog, a canary, and a goldfish) make fun of the show, little guinea pig gets mad and forgets that characters on TV are not real friends. There are some interesting lessons about pride, and the difference between reality and imagination, but what's really important is that the guinea pig is fat and adorable, and his sword is a pin, and there is a very cool lamp that shows up in several pictures. You've just got to read it.

Publisher Comments:

Little guinea pig is obsessed with his favorite TV show and with its star, Super Guinea Pig. Every day he tunes in to watch Super Guinea Pig save the world from evil and terrible disasters.

And every day he ignores his friends — an old hound dog, a yellow bird, and a plump goldfish — to watch his hero. When they start making fun of little guinea pig and asking why his new best friend never visits him, he dresses up as Super Guinea Pig to teach his friends a lesson. Leaping and acting like his hero, little guinea pig gets himself into a bit of trouble and calls upon Super Guinea Pig for help. Will Super Guinea Pig rescue him or will his real friends save the day?

Very cute and a wonderful lesson for kids of all ages. Hint Hint you other adults. My kids love this book and I actually enjoyed it myself. The colorful expressive language makes this an instant classic. Every child's library must have a copy.
