From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 The rambunctious rodents of Guinea Pig ABC (1983) and Guinea Pigs Far and Near (1984, both Dutton) return to answer these questions: ``What if a guinea pig wanted to clean up his house? . . . What if some guinea pigs wanted to bake a cake?''and ``What if a guinea pig wanted to be like somebody else?'' The irrepressible cast romps through each situation in merry mayhem, emerging undaunted for new adventures. (``What would a guinea pig do after he cleaned his house? . . . Have a party to celebrateand start all over again!''). Bright watercolor illustrations outlined in black are filled with energy and convey most of the action and humor. Dialogue appears in small asides within the illustrations, creating a challenge for story hour presentation, but enhancing enjoyment for individual readers. A delightful addition to the series. Starr LaTronica, North Berkeley Library, Calif.

From Publishers Weekly:

The Guinea Pig ABC came first, then four guinea-pig board books and Guinea Pigs Far and Near. Now these little furballs face three problems: how to clean a house (Stick a hose in and rinse it out? Get someone else to clean it?), how to bake a cake (recipes are abandoned) and how to be somebody else (through the addition of feathers or high heels). Duke's pigs make disasters look like terrific fun, and the only foreseeable problem with this book is to make sure that small guinea-pig fans don't take some of these situations to heart and start baking and cleaning in similar fashion. The artist's palette is a crazy quilt of pastels on a bright white background; small ballrooms identify the cartoon-style dialogue, and the entire book is a joyful offering. Ages 3-7.
