Something is wrong with Sammy, the beloved pet in Ms. B's class, and no one is sure what to do.
Usually Sammy is happy in his cage, with his little house and his soft blue sock, but today is different. What could it be?
Join Ms. B and the children as they try to figure out what is the matter with Sammy, and learn a little more about guinea pigs.
“The pastel-and-colored-pencil illustrations are very successful in depicting the characters, particularly the endearing little animal with a variety of facial expressions. . . . Through simple text and engaging artwork, Berenzy shows the proper set-up of a guinea-pig cage, what foods are best for these creatures, and how responsive they are to humans. This book will find an audience in the many classrooms that have pets.” —School Library Journal
“Guinea pigs are popular classroom pets, so many kids will identify with the experience of the students in Ms. B's class. . . . a particularly satisfying ending.” —Booklist
“Sammy, with his pink smile, floppy ears, and inquisitive nose, looks so lifelike that he almost waddles off the page.” —Publishers Weekly
