Alix Berenzy is the author and illustrator of two adapted fairy tales, A Frog Prince and Rapunzel. She has also illustrated several other books about animals, including Home at Last, Into the Sea, and My Kingdom for a Horse. Ms. Berenzy lives in Pennsylvania.
PreSchool-Grade 2-One Monday, Sammy is inexplicably unhappy. As Ms. B and her students try to figure out what is bothering him, many facts about guinea pigs and their care are conveyed. The teacher goes through all of the possible reasons for his distress-what kinds of symptoms would he have if he were sick? What would he do if he were frightened? What do his different noises mean? Finally, they discover that he just wants a little attention. The story is slight, but the pastel-and-colored-pencil illustrations are very successful in depicting the characters, particularly the endearing little animal with a variety of facial expressions. Sammy is presented in lifelike poses, and the renderings of the children and their somewhat-frazzled teacher also have an air of authenticity. Through simple text and engaging artwork, Berenzy shows the proper set-up of a guinea-pig cage, what foods are best for these creatures, and how responsive they are to humans. This book will find an audience in the many classrooms that have pets.-Lucinda Snyder Whitehurst, St. Christopher's School, Richmond, VA
