This is no literary treasure; the illustrations are terrible, and the text is all over the the place. It’s one part care guide, one part reference book, and two parts BS.
At one point the author (who is also the illustrator and publisher) states that “nobody knows why male guinea pigs fight.” We are fairly certain this means the author’s parents didn’t have the answer to that question.
You know where this story is going.
That would-be guinea pig expert went on to work in book stores and in publishing for twenty-five years before establishing Crwth Press.
We’re not here to fix a broken industry. We love the book industry, and Canada is home to some incredible publishers doing amazing work.
So why are we jumping in?
Because there are more talented artists and writers than there are publishers to produce their work. And we’re here to do our part.

Yes! Wonderful news. Congratulations. I think I heard once that male guinea pigs fight because there aren’t enough publishers. It will be wonderful to watch Crwth grow and thrive.
You could be right about the guinea pigs. Good thing we’re here to keep guinea pig relations peaceful.
If you are a guinea pig expert, does that extend to gerbils as well? My daughter had gerbils, and whenever they got the chance, they nibbled ravenously on her clothes. Does that make them herbivores going after the spilled tomato sauce, carnivores drawn to the drips of gravy, or omnivores, who ate anything if hungry enough?
It sounds like your daughter had a rare Tasmanian moth gerbil.
I’m glad I didn’t know that at the time.
I would have read the guinea pig book. Guinea pigs don’t get the recognition they deserve.
All the best with this new and exciting venture!
