School Library Journal - 10/01/2017 Gr 2–4—Spunky corgi Wedgie and Gizmo, the genius guinea pig, are back for more entertaining exploits with their fun-loving blended family. The kids want to put their rambunctious dog in the school pet parade but Mom and Dad aren't totally on board. Wedgie's always rolling in stinky stuff and he's got quite the reputation for running amok in social situations. Plus, the neighbor's adorable, crown-wearing, itty-bitty pig, who may also be in the parade, is a major distraction for their goofy pooch. Then there's Gizmo, a computer-savvy cavy who is possibly trying to take over the world with his online shopping. Hopefully Abuela, the only family member who seems to understand the little critter, will keep an eye on him. VERDICT This fast-paced chapter book, with its delightfully amusing illustrations, is an inviting read for elementary kids who appreciate zany animal stories.—Mary Jennings, Camano Island Lib., WA - Copyright 2017 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.

Booklist - 03/15/2018 Now that Gizmo is settled in at his new house with his owner, Elliot, and Elliot’s new stepfamily, it’s time for the villainous, bespectacled cavy to finally carry out his plans for world domination. While he tracks down a drone by which he plans to distribute flyers (his cavy compatriots don’t have email, after all), lovable corgi Wedgie and his owner, Jasmine, make friends with the new girl next door, Emily, and her pet micropig, Pinkie. Following a similar format to the series starter, Wedgie and Gizmo (2016), this follow-up also has a similar brand of humor—chapters alternate between Wedgie’s and Gizmo’s comical voices, and their wildly varied perspectives on situations will surely elicit giggles. The kid characters have a story, too, which mostly comes through interjected portions of conversations: Jasmine is dealing with some jealous feelings about her new friend, while Elliot is chafing over suddenly being an older brother. Those subplots get a little lost, but the silly main story and appealingly wacky animal characters are sure to lure in many readers. - Copyright 2018 Booklist.
