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.Read more ›
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.
There is humor that adults will appreciate, as well.
