    Caroline is really excited that her best friend has just gotten a guinea pig. Caroline and Millie want Navy and Butterscotch to meet and become best friends, too. Despite their hopes, though, it starts to look as though things might not work out.

    Meanwhile, Caroline's neighbor begins collecting zipper pulls. They're all that Stanley can talk about! Since Mom watches him a lot, Caroline discovers her summer days are suddenly filled with an alien invasion.

    Thank you for making this reprint a bestseller--in multiple countries! In 2013 it made the U.S. Amazon bestsellers list in two pet categories and had a photo spotlight as a Hot New Release. In the United Kingdom it reached #2 in Rabbit and Rodent Care in 2014, and previously made #17 on Most Wished For in Rabbit & Rodent Care list and #15 on Most Gifted last Christmastime in 2013. It continues to do well in the UK, and made #2 in Rabbits & Rodents April 25, 2016. It was #1 in Mice, Hamsters & Guinea Pigs on Amazon France in May 2016.

    I have fond memories from formulating the book many years ago. A book can be more than a book--it can be a gateway to creating memories. And I have heartfelt hopes that this book will be that for you. As always, please talk to your trusted veterinarian for information on what foods are safe for your guinea pigs at all stages of life, and remember these are special treats, not to be part of your guinea pigs' diet.
