KIRKUS REVIEW

No matter what he does, Willy the guinea pig can’t seem to fit in. When he joins the Pig Scouts he thinks things will change; he is a pig, after all. But all the other pigs turn up their snouts: “You can’t be a Pig Scout . . . You don’t even have a tail!” In a series of humorous watercolor vignettes, Bynum depicts the pigs as they partner up for a hike. Everyone looks happy, except for Willy and a pig named Peyton. But when the two fall down a well, Willy employs a special skill peculiar to guinea pigs and ends up saving the day. While the ending is a bit too good to be true, it’s still a nice little lesson about pride and prejudice that speaks to kids in a way that’s easy to understand. (Picture book. 3-7)
