Review: Fluffy Goes Apple Picking

Fluffy LOVES apples! And in this new adventure, he discovers just how far he'll go to have an apple of his own!
Ms. Day's class is going to an apple orchard, where Fluffy learns there will be hundreds of thousands of delicious apples. He can't wait! But when Kiss sleeps over in his cage the night before the trip, Fluffy has a horrible dream--Kiss is an apple-eating machine! There are no apples left for Fluffy! Luckily, it is just a dream, and the next morning Fluffy arrives at the orchard with a hungry tummy. But he soon realizes apple picking is not as easy as it sounds! Fluffy is not to be outdone, however, and he finds a way to enjoy his favorite fruit.

We picked this book up from our public library.

We are on another wonderful adventure with Fluffy. This time he is going apple picking with the class, and he can hardly wait. I mean who wouldn't be excited to go apple picking! As Fluffy gets excited about going to an apple farm where there are thousands of apples, he ends up getting a visitor in his cage. Kiss has come to visit and of course Fluffy isn't too happy about it. Will Kiss end up taking his place on the apple farm adventure?
My son's favorite part in this book was when Fluffy slipped out of Mr. Hill's hand and went flying through the air! He just got a full out chuckle on that. Being as guinea pigs can not fly.
Really enjoyable chapter book read, with wonderful pictures and a great story line.
