Summary, etc.:
"Guinea pigs, also called cavies, have been kept as pets ever since the Inca domesticated them more than 3,000 years ago in South America. However, owning a guinea pig isn't for everyone. Guinea pigs, like other pets, require love, attention, and a financial investment. This book explores what owning a guinea pig is really like and helps children understand if a guinea pig is the best pet for them. Full-color photographs show kids what their new pet will need, and a list of items illustrates the initial cost of owning a cavy." -- (Source of summary not specified)
