    This book was brilliant. I liked the writing and the fact there were still lots of pictures for me to look at. I loved chapter 4 Olga’s story. The story was about guinea pigs having tails. I loved Olga da Polga she had many stories to tell everyone. It was such a fun book to read. I was disappointed when it came to the end of the book but I will always remember the stories. This is one of my favourite books ever.

    This book would suit boys or girls who love animals and an adventure.
