EgmontUSA Celebrates a Very Merry e-Short Week

All week long EgmontUSA has been celebrating a Very Merry e-Short Week with e-Short Originals from authors Patrick Jennings, Bree Despain, Eilis O'Neal and Michael Grant. Today I am pleased to feature the e-Short of A Very Merry Guinea Dog by Patrick Jennings.   

About A Very Merry Guinea Dog
An e-short that adds an original short story to an award-winning, hilariously funny middle-grade series about guinea pigs that act like other pets.

Just right for fans of such writers as Louis Sachar, Andrew Clements, Dan Gutman, and James Howe.

Rufus's first Christmas with Fido, the guinea pig that acts like a dog, is not what he expected. Shredded wrapping paper, opened presents, a toppled Christmas tree are only some of the ingredients, but the main one is humor just right for middle-graders and their parents!
To celebrate A Very Merry e-Short Week, EgmontUSA has provided copies of Guinea Dog and Guinea Dog 2, the books that started it all, to giveaway. These are perfect books for the middle grade readers in your life. 

Rufus has been dreaming of getting a dog. His best friend has one. His worst friend has one. But his dad has a few objections: They whine. They gnaw. They bark. They scratch. They beg. They drool.

Rufus pays no attention when his mom offers her think-outside-the-box suggestion, because she can't be serious. She can't be.

She can be. And she actually comes home with a guinea pig. And if Rufus's dad thinks dogs are a problem, he won't know what hit him when he meets the Guinea Pig that Thinks She's a Dog. She barks. She bites. She'll eat your homework.

Readers who loved Guinea Dog have been sitting, begging, and rolling over for a sequel. The beloved Patrick Jennings returns with the follow up to his award-winning and state list hogging title!

When his classmates learn about Fido, the guinea pig that acts like a dog, they all want a piece of Rufus, her owner. But Rufus hates the attention, the demands, the "celebrity." So he decides to make Fido learn how to be an actual guinea pig. But when she goes missing, he feels terrible. Was she lost, "dognapped," or did she run away, because he no longer liked her just the way she was?

Offering the same offbeat humor and pacing of the first Guinea Dog, this novel will prove to be a reader's best friend.
