Jinny and Cooper My Teacher’s Big Bad Secret by Tania Ingram
Published by Penguin Australia
The book is about a girl called Jinnifer or Jinny for short. She really really wanted a guinea pig and for her tenth birthday she finally got one. Jinny called him Fuzzy, but the guinea pig told her his name was Cooper. Jinny was amazed, she had a talking guinea pig who liked to eat biscuits and can tell if a person is actually a witch. Jinny soon discovered that Cooper can do all sorts of great things. He can travel small distances by blinking his eyes and twitching his nose. He can also turn invisible. Cooper is one amazing guinea pig, but he’s also a lot of trouble! This led Jinny and her brother Tyrone on an amazing adventure.
I really like this book, but wished it had a list of characters at the front. The best bit was how Cooper found out who the witch was.
I give Jinny and Cooper 4 stars!
It was full of action and lots of fun. I think this book would be enjoyed by both boys and girls.
