Everyone’s heard of the three little pigs, but what about the three little guinea pigs?

Way up in the Andes Mountains, Urku, Inti, and Nina have just finished building three new homes when a surprise visitor arrives.

It’s Fox, and being pigs, the guineas are quick to judge that he’s up to no good, though he wears a stylish scarf and patiently calls, “Guinea pigs, guinea pigs, come with me. I have something for your family.”

As young readers familiar with the traditional story will recall, many a pig has been tricked before, so it’s not surprising that the trio wishes to huddle inside. What the guinea pigs don’t see is how the animals are banding together to help them. In the end, it just might take the whole mountain of creatures to show them that things aren’t always as they seem and traditional fairytale foes could actually be friends.

Set in Andean South America, this fresh, lighthearted twist on a classic tale invites readers to challenge assumptions, embrace community, and trust in teamwork.
