 In the ``Nature Watch'' series, an adaptation of a book first published in 1988 in Switzerland. Glossy color photos of these appealing animals eating, cuddling, playing, giving birth, and hiding illustrate a brief history of guinea pigs and offer information on different breeds and their specialized anatomy, care and feeding, and life cycle. While the same information is available in many pet titles, the photos here are especially attractive. Glossary; index. (Nonfiction. 8-12)
