If you like funny books you should read Stink and the Guinea Pig Express. Stink is a boy who has two friends and one sister. His two friendsí names are Webster and Sophie. In the story Stink, Webster, and Sophie try and find 100 homes for 100 Guinea pigs. Stink, Webster and Sophie are going through their whole state looking for 100 homes for the 100 Guinea pigs. Sophie plans on going to the Mermaid Fountains and Webster plans on going to where the biggest Guinea pig on Earth lives. And Stink plans on going to where the biggest ham on Earth is. If you want to find out if they find 100 home for the 100 Guinea pigs read the book.

The book Guinea Pig Express is really funny because Stink wants to go to the museum where the biggest ham on Earth is. I canít imagine going in to a museum and seeing a giant ham. I liked the book because it has good illustrations. It has good illustrations because in each illustration there is a funny situation. One of the illustrations shows Stink, Webster, and Sophie chasing a bunch of Guinea pigs. One of the Guinea pigs was even on Websterís behind. My favorite part in the book is when they were chasing the Guinea pigs. It was funny because they are running around like they are crazy. My favorite character is Stink because he reminds me of my brother. My brother and Stink both like disgusting stuff like boogers. This book is like the book The Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Treasure Hunt because Judy is always bothering Stink in both books.

I recommend this book for 7 to 8 year olds. If you like funny books, you should read this book. You will read about Stink wanting to see the biggest ham in the world, which is really funny.
