Super Furry Undead Pets Fans

Introducing a new group of Undead Pets fans – the Guinea Girls! jilly ruby and boo

Jilly (the dark brown one), Ruby (with the magical red eyes) And lovely Boo (sporting the best hair-doo ever!). These gorgeous guineas belong to eight year-old Bryn and his mum and dad, Jane and Chris.

Bryn’s a big Undead Pets fan and he wanted to share the books with his guineas – especially Gasp of the Ghoulish Guinea Pig!
Bryn and Boo 

Mum Jane, who works at Monmouth Library, says the Guinea Girls are very interested in the books, but they’re not very good at sitting still for long without needing a wee. Not so nice for the person they’re sitting on!

Just like the guinea pigs in the Undead Pets book, these girls have big personalities. 

jilly, bryn and boo

Jilly is friendly and outgoing and a bit greedy. She often overeats! Boo is Jilly’s little sister. She got her name because Bryn reckoned her crazy hair made her look like she’d had a fright. She’s the baby of the gang and runs around – a lot! And Ruby is a laid-back peaceful little guinea, who enjoys a bath and is a great swimmer!  

It’s always fun to meet Undead Pets fans – especially the furry ones! Thanks to Bryn, Jane and Chris for sharing their lovely Guinea Girls. And if you live in Monmouthshire, checkout Monmouth Library this Easter – there’s loads going on for kids. Plus they’ve got a brilliant selection of children’s books that you (and your pets!) will love.Monmouth library
