Description

"My name is Peggy and I am a guinea pig. You may wonder why a guinea pig would write her autobiography, but when you hear of my remarkable adventures, I'm sure you'll see why." Told in the voice of a remarkable guinea pig, this charming first—reader will enchant children, parents and teachers alike. Stefan Jorisch's delightful full—colour illustrations bring Peggy alive.
