A Thai Lullaby; Inside, Inside, Inside; and Small Green Snake, which was an American Bookseller Pick of the Lists. She lives in a small town in Maine. They began reading it in his kindergarten class this year, and he's named our Guinea pig, Freddy McGee because of it.

John Willy and Freedy McGee is a cute book about 2 guinea pigs who decide that their life in the cage is to boring . The boys loved the adventures of John Willy and Freddy McGee and actually laughed out loud when the little guinea pigs were in the pool table.

John Willy and Freedy McGee is a cute book about 2 guinea pigs who decide that their life in the cage is to boring for them. When their cage door gets left open they take the opportunity to go out and go exploring. The explore around the whole house until they go into the pool table and the cat starts rolling balls at them. After that they decide that they would like to be in the safety of their cage. I loved the ending as my boys cheered "Run, John Willy! Run, Freddy McGee!"

We rented this book from the library then decided to purchase it. We actually happen to find a playmobil toy with guinea pigs that bear a striking resemblance to John Willy and Freddy McGee. This is a darling book, the boys love the 'escape' and racing aspect to the story

We rented this book from the library then decided to purchase it. This is a darling book, the boys love the 'escape' and racing aspect to the story. Great for families who root for the guinea pigs (or hamsters, rabbits, etc) who sit in cages.

Portrays the petite piggies personalities perfectly!! Just darling <3 the illustrations are spot on how guinea pigs move when they escape their cage or are allowed to roam free range in your home.
I admit I am a grown up that has fallen head over heels with the darling little creatures- so I'm sure this review is totally biased!! After buying a guinea pig for my daughter as a pet when she was 5, after doing much research as to what little creature would be best in an apartment setting, we have been cavy slaves ever since. My daughter is 20 years old now.

They have us very well trained as to going directly to the fridge whenever they squeal to get them a veggie snack. And they have in mind exactly which veggie they want at the moment and will turn their precious little faces if you bring a bite of green bell pepper instead of tiny shredded carrots that they had their litter mouths set for.

And I must give them their fresh green leaf lettuce in the morning before I have my coffee or I won't hear the end of the squeals and they just get louder!

They do adore cuddling and will very happily be couch pigs with you while you watch a movie on a rainy (or sunny) day. And I have frequent debilitating migraines and the precious little angel will cuddle in bed with me, being ever so quiet and still- I do believe she knows I'm hurting. She will lay her face right up against mine and cuddle so sweetly and go so sleep with me. This does help to relax me and her little licks son my face are so sweet.

When she needs to go to the bathroom, she very gently lays her teeth on my finger (not biting)-she figured this out herself. Then I ask her if she needs to go back to her cage. She looks in my eyes and ever so gently lays her teeth on my fingers again. So I take her back. She will not go to the bathroom I my bed.

Thank you Holly for this LOVELY book!!! The first guinea pig we had was free range most of the time (our apt then was pig proof)-- your book brings back soon many happy memories of our PuffBall who is free ranging it on the other side of the rainbow bridge now <3

Huge hugs to you Holly!!! Looking forward to any and all more guinea pig adventure stories!!! And our Pixie says,"Wheeeeeeeeek!!!!" to you dear lady <3 xo

Those of us who love guinea pigs can become addicted; we can become fanatics. And why not? They're cute, they're cuddly, they're charming. This book may be a story for children, but it emphasizes the playful nature of guinea pigs that outsiders are unaware of.
Many people think of small cage pets as boring - well, you'd be boring too, if you spent your whole life in a room only a little larger than you are! But give a guinea pig room to explore, and explore he will. Real guinea pigs explore rooms in trains (one piggle behind another); these two piggies illustrate this behavior excellently. Real piggies push balls around with their noses, run through PVC tubes or ferret tubes, and occasionally tease larger pets by running under their noses; John Willie and Freddy McGee again illustrate this real behavior, in an amusing way.
The pictures are great - they'll have you saying "I know a guinea pig that looks like that!" The text is minimal, as would be expected, but what there is, is amusing. Words are not confined to one-syllable words; the author is aware that young children may have a receptive vocabulary larger than their speaking vocabulary, and also is aware that a book should be amusing for the adult who may have to read it 80 times in a row for their child.
I own this book and I don't even have children; other adults who visit us and are amused by our pet guinea pigs wind up taking this book off our shelves and reading it all the way through. Sometimes, it never makes it back off the coffee table and onto the shelf, because friends keep reading it. Buy your own copy, people!

This particular story became a favorite of our son's while he was in Pre-K. They began reading it in his kindergarten class this year, and he's named our Guinea pig, Freddy McGee because of it. The story is definitely cute and can easily be remembered and recited by young ones after awhile. It's also a story that, as a parent, you don't dread repeating each and every time it's brought to you at storytime.

We read this story 2x, but my 3-year old hasn't asked to have it read to him again. In fact, I forgot we had this until it showed up in my list of stuff to review. I also found the flow of words to be a little unnatural. The story may be better appreciated in a house that has hamsters (oops, guinea pigs).

My son loves this book! It was in great condition when it arrived. And we read it almost everyday.

I hope this one becomes a classic. It is entirely clever. Very funny and relatable. My son is 5 and he cracks up every time!
