Stink and the Great Guinea Pig Express by Megan McDonald

Overview from Barnes and Nob;e:

Nearly 600,000 Stink books in print
When three guinea pigs from the local pet shop make a great escape, Stink Moody and his friends Webster and Sophie spring into action. Ta-da! The Fantastic Fur Friends round up the little hairballs and bring them safely back to Mrs. Birdwistle’s shop, where they discover — oohla- la! — guinea pig pandemonium! Time for the Great Guinea Pig Giveaway! Stink and company hit the road aboard the Squeals on Wheels Express in a crazy quest to find good homes for 101 squealing, whistling, chirping, wiggly piggies. FUR-eaky!

My thoughts:
Pets are another big obsession with children.  My kids keep asking when we are getting a dog or cat which leads to requests for smaller pets.  Stink and his friends are no exception.  They love the pet store and can't wait to help Mrs. Birdwhistle find homes for all the guinea pigs she has taken in to save them from being experimented on.  Stink even picks out one he really wants to keep as his own.  Using an old RV the gang drives around trying to give away as many of the 101 pigs as they can.  Pet ownership  is more than just wanting an animal and loving it, but taking care of all the other needs.
