Often mistaken for a rat . . . or, worse yet, a meal, Valentino is a guinea pig trying to find a home where he can live happily ever after. He runs away from his native home in Bolivia as a stowaway and he has many adventures until good fortune lands him in a pet shop. Soon after, he finally meets Maddie—a little girl with a lot of love to share who is hoping for the perfect pet. Who says dreams never do come true or there’s no such thing as a happy ending? Just ask Valentino and Maddie!


Andy Whiteside has done a magnificent job of making the "rat" / guinea pig's journey fun and entertaining for young readers who dream of adventures themselves. Kids love pets and the idea of saving a pet who needs then is so luring to a child.

Valentino finds a Home is beautifully illustrated and written in a fun loving way that is sure to be an instant hit with young readers. I was provided a complimentary copy for an honest review.
