Roy Miki & Slavia Miki, illustrated by Stéphane Jorisch
"My name is Peggy and I am a guinea pig. You may wonder why a guinea pig would write her autobiography, but when you hear of my remarkable adventures, I'm sure you'll see why."
Told in the voice of a remarkable guinea pig, this charming first-reader will enchant children, parents and teachers alike.
Stéphane Jorisch's delightful full-colour illustrations bring Peggy to life. (From Tradewind Press)
Peggy is for readers aged 8-12.
Peggy will be available in Oct. 2019.
