    Last year, we introduced you to A Guinea Pig Pride & Prejudice and it flew out of our warehouse. This year, the rodents are taking on another classic and it's equally brilliant - yes, it's A Guinea Pig Oliver Twist.

    In the stocking filler-sized retelling of the Charles Dickens classic, fur and fiction combine. The fluffy little orphan Oliver Twist works in a warehouse and is barely fed. When he asks for some more, he sparks off a chain of events that lead him to the big city. Once here, he encounters even more furry friends including Fagin, the Artful Dodger, Nancy and Bill Sikes.

    With the story broken down into guinea pig-sized chunks, this is a brilliant Secret Santa gift and could even work as the perfect introduction to one of the most famous novels of all time.
