Meet Harry Stevenson. He doesn’t live in a castle, or a witch’s cottage, or anywhere exciting like that. His home is in a flat with seven-year-old Billy and his mum and dad. And at first glance, Harry doesn’t seem any different from your average guinea pig. He has ginger fur and sparkly black eyes and likes nothing more than snacking on a piece of broccoli.
But don’t be fooled! Harry may just want to sleep and eat (and then eat some more) but somehow he always manages to get swept up in adventures: whether it’s surfing the Pacific on a picnic plate or accidentally attaching himself to a helium balloon.

I like guinea pigs because they are cute. We have a guinea pig called Mr Chubbs, he is quite old and he likes eating. I liked The Adventures of Harry Stevenson because I could imagine my guinea pig having the same adventures as Harry.
My favourite part was at the end of the first story. I can’t tell you what it was about because it will spoil it for you. You’ll have to read it to find out!
I would recommend this book to people who like animals and bright pictures in stories. I think my 7 year old cousin would like this book.
