The Wizard and Me: More Misadventures of Bubbles the Guinea Pig

« Back

Written by: Simon Farnaby
Illustrated by: Claire Powell
Publisher: Hachette Children's Group

This is the diary of me, Bubbles the guinea pig, from the time my owner’s life was turned upside down by annoying wizard Merdyn the Wild. It includes fascinating thoughts about things I like:

1. Food.
2. My owner Rose, because she gives me food.
3. Doing poos, to make more room for food.

And things I don’t like:
1. Dogs.
2. Merdyn the Wild – yes, he did a spell so that I could speak – but he’s a big pain in the place my poos come out of.
3. Dogs. I know I’ve said this already, but I HATE DOGS!

Oh, and it’s got some stuff about time travel and magic and evil sorcerers. Boring!
