Title: Wedgie & Gizmodogs and guinea pigs have their day wedgie & gizmo

Author: Suzanne Selfors

Target: Grades 2-6

Series: This is the first book in a planned series

What this book is about:

This book is told from the point of view of two characters, Wedgie and Gizmo. Now keep in mind that Wedgie a superhero dog who LOVES everyone. He keeps his pack safe by barking at all suspected enemies and smells everything. Gizmo is an evil genius guinea pig who detests being sniffed and wants nothing more than to get rid of his nemesis Wedgie!

Why I love this book:

  • If you have a pet then this book will have you smiling with a knowing sense of understanding Hearing the thoughts behind the tail wags, barks, and spins, as well as the cushion tunneling, will have the reader laughing out loud. It actually made me a little nicer to my dog last night when he tripped me several times while making dinner.
  • The absolutely ridiculous animal logic was so funny! Wedgie thinks his cape makes him magical, Gizmo thinks that carrier pigeons are sending messages to his lost love at the pet shop and that he turned Grandma into a vegetarian!
  • The illustrations by Barbara Fisinger are charming. Just enough to capture the heart of the story and the animals’ unique personalities.

Who this book is for:

Great book for kids who like funny and animals. Nice step up from early chapter books. Kids who enjoyed The Great Pet Escape, The Bad Guys or My Big Fat Zombie Goldfish should like this one.

Final thoughts:

This is funny stuff.
