Bruno and Titch
Told from the point of view of the guinea pig, Sheena Dempsey has completely captured the joy of having a guinea pig—or should I say, of a guinea pig having a “Big Person”. Titch is sure the big person entering the pet shop will not choose him, but Bruno, a highly imaginative boy, based on his colander hat and tool apron he wears, stops and smiles at Titch. “It’s finally happening! My very own Big Person AT LAST!” Titch shouts. But Titch finds Bruno likes strange foods, like pancakes, while Titch prefers fresh apples. They do everything together. Then one day Bruno starts acting strange. He measures Titch, draws some pictures and leaves Titch alone for a very long time. Titch becomes afraid that Bruno no longer wants him as a friend and that he might be returned to the pet store. But no, Bruno had built Titch a guinea-pig palace, complete with his own Jacuzzi, fruit-salad bar and a hammock. Titch exclaims, “I waited a long time for my Big Person. But now I have Bruno. And he has me.” A delightful story that moves quickly and captures perfect the curious and loving expressions of the characters.
