About the Author

Colleen AF Venable grew up in the trees of Walden, New York....well, not very high up the trees, since she always got scared, but she did carve her name in a lot of low hanging boughs. Colleen had an older sister, a dog, a cat, a million fish, and an imaginary pet hamster named, yup you guessed it, Hamisher. Why have an imaginary friend when you can have an imaginary friend that can fit in your pocket! Colleen went to Wagner College and double majored in English and Studio Art, winning the award of "biggest dork" (aka first in her class) and writing plays which went on to be produced Off-Off-Broadway. Her whole life she always loved reading comics--Calvin and Hobbes, The Far Side, and she wore out her copy of the Muppets: Short, Green and Handsome--but it wasn't until she started to get into webcomics that she also fell in love with the idea of writing comics. Now Colleen lives in New York City and her day job is designing graphic novels for First Second Books while her night job is writing graphic novels about a not-so-imaginary-anymore hyperactive hamster named Hamisher. She thinks the world is a very lovely place.

Format: Paperback
All kinds of people were flocking to Mr. Venezi's store, "Pets & Stuff," hoping to get a job as his assistant, but he just couldn't seem to find the right one. When he asked one woman, "So on a scale of 1 to 10, have you ever ridden a llama?" and she didn't understand the question, Hamisher hamster and Sassapants P(IG) knew there was a problem. Interview after interview was going wrong for one reason or another. They positively knew they were in trouble when Mr. Venezi almost hired a dude with spiked hair who freaked out when he saw a fuzzy alligator and ran. Of course the fuzzy alligator was Hamisher. Charlotte, from the second hand book store next door came over to offer a few suggestions to make hiring an assistant easy. "Bingbong!" The next thing you know in came Viola, the perfect person ... but was she?

Marcus Venezi never got the name of his animals right, but everyone was crazy about him from the Long Koalas (ferrets) to the gorillas (chinchillas). It didn't take long for Viola to take over the shop and the next day everything was going perfectly, but when she took Sasspants's books away they got an inkling that something was amiss. That night Mr. Venezi told Viola that she had done such a great job it almost made him feel like he'd "been running the shop wrong for years!" Soon everyone knew that things were perfect ... perfectly wrong, perfectly hideous, perfectly AWFUL. Mr. Venezi turned up missing and Viola was acting very strange. What could Sassapants P(IG) and his junior detective, Hamisher, do to find Mr. Venezi and return the shop to un-normal? Looked like another case for the dynamic pet shop duo to solve!

Every Sassapants P(IG) mystery buff is going to be totally puzzled when Mr. Venezi disappears.

Or is she? Mystery abounds as Mr. Venezi disappears and the animals panic. In the course of this story, Hamisher finally starts winning over Sasspants to his true calling as a friend and detective.

The Guinea PI series has been a favorite of our family for over a year. This graphic novel series has provided hours of enjoyment for us. Our now seven year old sits in our lap and we read the story to him out loud, while he follows along in the pictures. The content is very kid-appropriate. No violence, very little to be scared of, lots of cute but quirky characters. Yet there are some very real social situations that are illustrated, so that our child learns cultural cues and norms. The narrative is layered and convoluted, making it interesting for adults. The characters are so well written and illustrated that it is easy to find voices for them as we read aloud. All in all, I highly recommend this for anyone five and older that enjoy animals and their personalities.

All of the books in this series are great fun & offer chances to improve reading skills. My 6 year old grandson laughs out loud at the animal's antics.
There is humor that adults will appreciate, as well.

Young readers and adults will enjoy these humorous stories. They provide more reading opportunities than many comic style graphic novels.
