In this heart-rending tale of guinea pig love, best friends Brian and Bob are cruelly separated, when Bob is sold and suddenly taken away from the pet shop. Now poor Brian has no-one to play I-Spy with, and even a peanut can't cheer him up. Misery sets in until he, too, is sold, and the two guinea pigs are reunited in a touching final scene.
Warm and funny, a book to make you smile.

A gifted young writer and illustrator, Georgie Ripper won the Macmillan Prize for Picture Book Illustration in 2000 with MY BEST FRIEND, BOB and LITTLE BROWN BUSHRAT, which was published by Macmillan in 2002 -- her first picture book (HB 0 333 96082 3, PB 0 333 96083 1). Her second, MY BEST FRIEND, BOB shows a further development in her watercolour style, and her ability to create instantly recognisable and appealing animal characters. It received wide praise on its hardback publication in 2003.
