Format: Hardcover
Charlie is an over-the-top character, full of fun and frolic. The story, based loosely on the author's experiences with her family's pet guinea pig, is imaginative and engaging. Children will love hearing about the adventures and misadventures of this wannabe-star. And adults will find plenty to keep them entertained as well. An added bonus are the pictures. Charming.

This is a fun and funny story of a guinea pig who wants to make it big in HollyWOOD. He leaves behind a note and a newspaper clipping and heads to the West Coast, only to find the glittery world of stardom is not all it's cracked up to be -- especially when there is no Fruity Nut Buffet to be had. Fake smiles and the feigned interest of strangers make Charlie realize that home it the place to be. My daughters (ages 7, 5 1/2, and 3) adore this book!

Our whole family loves Guinea Pigs and this book is one of the most often read of our (at least) one hundred book library. It is great when a book is as fun for the reader as it is for the listener.

This story is hilarious! In my class it is loved by the children and the teachers as well. It is available as a story CD as well which adds to the humor of the book.
