Michael Bond, the creator of Paddington Bear, offers another lovable character--Olga da Polga, a very special guinea pig. Olga's frequent misunderstanding of things brings her into adventures--and misadventures. Soon she meets Boris, a Russian guinea pig, and they enjoy regaling each other, and us, with their charming stories. Narrator Lynda Bellingham expertly recreates many animal and human characters, adding great humor and warmth to Bond's delightful tale. The story ends perfectly as Olga shares with listeners the birth of her and Boris's babies. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
