This was a fantastic read for us to enjoy - 8yr and 6yr readers. VERY entertaining and quite funny!

This was such a cute book. I listened to the audio and the readers were fantastic. I might have to read a few more from this series if the first one is anything to go by.

This is a really great series, with quick paced, high quality humor. It's hard to find good chapter without anything scary or suspenseful for this age group. These are so fun to read, and a great way for 2nd grade kiddos to quit Dogman. But honestly, I'm 45 and chuckled my way through it. I really hope that Suzanne Selfors keeps writing these! My kiddo has read and reread the 3 that exist so far. They're all great, told from the dramatically different perspectives of Wedgie the Corgi, and Gizmo the guinea pig/evil genius. Also broaches the feelings of changing family makeup, as the kids in the story have new siblings and a new 'step-parent', and have to figure out the new dynamic.

A tale of conflict and cooperation narrated in turns by an evil genius and loving superhero.

Gizmo is a guinea pig and Wedgie a dog, and they have just come together from different sides of a new blended family. Each offers a perfectly egocentric version of the tale, sharing only his perspective and concerns. Mixed in are bits of human conversation the pets overhear, and through that dialogue readers get the bigger picture of the two families adjusting to each other. Gizmo, Elliot, and Dad have just moved in with Wedgie, Jasmine, Jackson, Mom, and Abuela. The three stories weave together wonderfully, Gizmo's dreams of world domination, Wedgie's enthusiasm for existence, and the people's--particularly Elliot's--struggles adapting to a new life. All given even more life with excellent illustrations.

Hilarious and relatable.
