Rufus really wants a dog. He really really wants a dog. Everybody he knows has a dog, from his best friend to his worst friend. The family down the street has three! But his clean-fiend Dad says no way! Dogs bark and beg. They drool. They slobber. They carry bloodsucking fleas.
When Mom, despite protests, brings home a guinea pig as a compromise, the whole family is in for a shock. Because Rufus’s new pet doesn’t act like a guinea pig at all: She runs. She fetches. She’ll eat his homework. If Dad thinks dogs are trouble, wait until he has to live with Fido, the guinea dog!
Patrick Jennings’s hilarious novel is perfect for everyone who’s begged for a pet and gotten more (and less) than they bargained for.
