The Adventures of Harry Stevenson, Guinea Pig Superstar
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Harry Stevenson, a rather plump ginger guinea pig, is very fond of carrots and dandelions. He's also very fond of his owner, Billy. Harry's always sad when Billy has to disappear to the mysterious place called 'school' every day, but this time, Billy is taking Harry to school for show and tell. Yippee! Yet when it turns out that Fergus has also brought in his pet - a corn snake - the day turns out to have some unexpected results....
This illustrated young reader book contains two stories, perfect for young animal fans that aren't looking for long reads. In the second story, Billy, Maya and Harry enjoy a fun day at the local swanky hotel until Mr Bevan the hotel manager gets suspicious about all the bite marks in the plants, and Harry foils a robber intent on stealing a very special trophy.
If you loved the first Harry Stevenson book,or books by Alex T Smith and the Bad Nana series by Sophy Henn, you'll love this - Ali Pye's rich orange, black and white illustrations are full of character and humour for a charming, relatable story for younger aged primary school children.
