Guinea Dog by Patrick Jennings

Guinea Dog is the classic tale of a boy who wants a dog and will do anything to convince his parents to get him one.  His mom ignores his request and gets him a guinea pig instead.  The classic tale gets turned upside down at this point.  As you can tell from the cover art, this is no ordinary guinea pig.  I can't wait to share this book with my students who love animals and humor.

July 2014 update: since my original review, Patrick Jennings has added to the series.  Click here for a free printable story plan where students can analyze a story for elements or write their own story.
