We've admired guinea pigs in bonnets edged with delicate lace and dapper top hats in A Guinea Pig Pride & Prejudice, swooning over the love between Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. We've oohed and ahhed over guinea pigs in the sweet, hay-filled manger in A Guinea Pig Nativity. Now, in A Guinea Pig Oliver Twist, we'll delight in the adorable little pigs with expressive eyes dressed in the tattered rags of street urchins and orphans that roamed the streets in gritty 19th-century London. At only nine years old, Oliver Twist is transferred from an orphanage to a workhouse for adults. He is sold to an undertaker as an apprentice, and finally escapes to London, where he joins a gang of pickpocketing street urchins led by Fagin, an older criminal. But young Oliver isn't made for a life of crime, and is upset when his compatriots steal an elderly gentleman's handkerchief. Mr. Brownlow, the owner of the handkerchief, senses Oliver's true nature and takes him in, but the band of thieves won't let Oliver live a straight and narrow life; they kidnap him and drag him back into a life on the street. Forced to assist in a burglary, Oliver is shot and again taken in by the victims of the crime. One of the women, it turns out, is his aunt, and once Mr. Brownlow formally adopts Oliver, they all begin a blissful life in the country. This compact little book is illustrated by dozens of photographs of our favorite guinea pig actors and actresses.

And did we mention the cartoons? Nom Nom Paleo kicks off with a fresh introduction to Paleo eating, taking readers on a guided tour of author Michelle Tam's real-food strategies for stocking the kitchen, saving time, and maximizing flavors while maintaining a Paleo lifestyle. Also, sprinkled throughout the book are enlightening features on feeding kids, packing nutritious lunches, boosting umami, and much more. But the heart of this book are Michelle's award-winning primal Paleo recipes, 50 percent of which are brand-new --- even to diehard fans who own her bestselling iPad cookbook app. Readers can start by marrying their favorite ingredients with building blocks like Sriracha Mayonnaise, Louisiana Remoulade, and the infamous Magic Mushroom Powder. These basic recipes lay the foundation for many of the fabulous delights in the rest of the book including Eggplant "Ricotta" Stacks, Crab Louie, and Devils on Horseback. There's something for everyone in this cookbook, from small bites like Apple Chips and Kabalagala (Ugandan plantain fritters) to family-sized platters of Coconut Pineapple "Rice" and Siu Yoke (crispy roast pork belly). Crave exotic spices? You won't be able to resist the fragrant aromas of Fast Pho or Mulligatawny Soup. In the mood for down-home comforts? Make some Yankee Pot Roast or Chicken Nuggets drizzled with Lemon Honey Sauce. When a quick weeknight meal is in order, Nom Nom Paleo can show you how to make Crispy Smashed Chicken or Whole-Roasted Branzini in less than 30 minutes. And for a cold treat on a hot day, nothing beats Paleo-diet-friendly Mocha Popsicles or a two-minute Strawberry Banana Ice Cream. Eating healthy doesn't mean sacrificing flavor.
