Oh, Theodore!: Guinea Pig Poems
By Susan Katz; illustrated by Stacey Schuett
A boy gets a guinea pig for a pet. The boy and his guinea pig, Theodore (so named because he's soft, fuzzy and brown like a teddy bear), cautiously adjust to each other, and their affection develops. Told in short, easy-to-read poems.
