This lovely story of family bonds in a guinea pig family. Chloe loves her uncle Bobby and is opposed to his getting married to Jaime because she doesn’t want to be unimportant. Her mother explains that when adults love each other that much they want to be married and encourages Chloe to speak to her uncle about her worries. When Bobby, Jaime, and Chloe all spend time together, Chloe realizes she will gain a second wonderful uncle when Bobby and Jaime get married. Then, she endorses their marriage and agrees to be the flower girl at the wedding. On the day of the wedding, she saves the day when Bobby and Jaime forget things necessary for the ceremony. Brannen does a great job of carrying us through Chloe’s emotional changes and showing us how a strong bond with an adult can make a child feel confident that they are the most important part of the adult’s life.
