Dr. Guinea Pig George is a book about a doctor who owns a guinea pig. It just so happens the Guinea Pig and the doctor are both named George. When I review a children’s book I always read it with the mind of a child stuck in this old body.

I am only one person so my reviews are my opinion only. I am sure others feel differently. I found the book a bit confusing. I mean the story was good and fun. Just thought a really young person because both characters had the same name Could be confused.  I also would have liked the illustrations to be more colorful. The art was very nice and got the point across. I just think children enjoy more colors. At least I do.


Am I saying it’s not worth your money? No way. The whole idea of a pig helping a doctor is funny. Heck, I live in Redding, California where the doctors are so bad I wish I had George the guinea pig to go see.

Gertrude and Toby’s Friday Adventure

Author: Shari Tharp
Illustrator: Jim Heath

I decided to just tell you everything about the book so you don’t have to buy it. Just kidding! I am always kidding, I am a kidder. See what I did there.? The main character in the book is Gertrude, a baby goat, and a baby goat is called a kid. How clever of me!

I love to read books about adventures and just let my mind take me on a journey with the characters. Even though this is a picture book, there is enough of a story to let your mind go on the journey with Gertrude and Toby. Toby is Gertrude’s best friend. Not like Facebook friends but real friends.


They both love Fridays best because that’s when farmer Sam leaves the farm so Gertrude and Toby can go on Friday adventures. This adventure is so much fun. Even though they are just trying to find the market, you get to meet some amazing folks along the way. , folks I am sure you already know. I love how the author blended fairytales we all know into Gertrude and Toby’s adventure. I also love the illustrations. The facial expressions are priceless and make sure you don’t just skim through the artwork or you’ll miss all the other little critters who pop in and out. I loved this book and am looking forward to the next adventure.


P.S. I am so glad Gertrude didn’t eat the apple.

Billy is a 9-year-old boy who is turning 10 soon on the 10th of the month which also just happens to be in the 10th month of the year, 10-10-10.

Billy lives on the other side of the pond, as they say, in Great Britain. I love to watch T.V. shows from Great Britain so the fact that this book takes place there made it even more fun to read.

Sadly, on his 10th birthday, Billy runs into the town bully, Eddy. Now lucky for Billy he has some friends to turn to for help, Ant, his best friend and Max, Ant’s sister. Max turns out to be the hero of the story but I don’t want to give too much away.

Billy Gets Bullied is a book you can’t stop reading until you come to the end because you want to find out how things turn out for Billy.

Billy Gets Bullied should be read by all parents. I suggest parents read this book with their children and discuss it afterward as a family. I wouldn’t be surprised if you find out that your own child has been or is being bullied.

The book brought back memories for me. You see, I was bullied at almost the same age as Billy but unlike Billy, I felt I had no one to turn to. It’s up to parents and grandparents to make sure the children know they have someone they can confide in.

This book is full of great illustrations that are colorful and fun to look at. You will learn about the different animals Terry finds when he goes on his journey to find who lost an egg. You will meet Sandy the turtle, Ally the Alligator, Fergie the frog, and Betty the Hen. You’ll also meet one more but I don’t want to give the whole story away. You’ll also learn how the moms take care of all their babies. That was fun!


I liked this book very much. It has almost everything I look for in a book. There are nice colorful images and you get to learn without knowing you’re learning. I had fun reading it. You and yours will enjoy it, too.
