Ever wonder what it’s like to be a guinea pig? Well, Brenna Maloney shows you that it’s not all fun and games in this delightful, live-action tale of three piggy sisters!

Philomena is a guinea pig. So are her sisters, Audrey and Nora Jane. Life is good.

Until Philomena realizes she could see better with a pair of glasses.

So Audrey and Nora Jane get them, too.

Soon Philomena realizes she needs something to keep her glasses in, so she gets a handbag.

So Audrey and Nora Jane get handbags, too.

Soon Philomena realizes that her handbag would look a lot better with a dress, so she get a nice one.

So Audrey and Nora Jane get dresses, too.

Now all three guinea pig sisters are wearing glasses, handbags, and dresses!

Sound ridiculous?? Well, they finally realize that, too.

Here is a very silly story that illustrates what happens when you want more than you really need.

For all those FB users that can’t pass up the cute/silly pet videos!

A silly story with a smart message: don’t get what you don’t need!

Introduces children to why people (and a guinea pig or two…) wear glasses.

Adorable and hysterical photo illustrations of guinea pigs. No pigs were harmed!

Short, easy-to-read text just right for story and bedtime!

Philomena is a character to capture animal-loving hearts.

* “When Ready Rabbit finally makes it onto the school bus, readers will wish they could follow him to school.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Kids might want to make stuffed rabbit toys of their own after meeting this beguiling bunny.”—Kirkus Reviews

“This book features tableaus of a lumpy-eared, striped gray sock-puppet surrounded by toys, accessories and dollhouse-size furniture, photographed against white so you can examine every teeny-tiny detail. And if you’re a child, or admit to having once been one, you will want to do just that.”—The New York Times Book Review
