    DESCRIPTION Colleen AF Venable
    The animals in Mr. Venezi's pet shop are used to how forgetful he is. Then he hires the perfect assistant, Viola. She does her job so well that Mr. V hardly needs to be there. In fact, one day, Mr. V doesn't come back at all! But then Viola starts ignoring the animals. Has Mr. V given the pet shop to a villain? Or is some other mystery afoot? Sasspants, PI(G)—fluffy-but-determined guinea pig detective—and junior detective Hamisher the hamster—will soon fish out the answers!

    About the Author
    Colleen AF Venable grew up in the trees of Walden, New York….well, not very high up the trees, since she always got scared, but she did carve her name in a lot of low hanging boughs. Colleen had an older sister, a dog, a cat, a million fish, and an imaginary pet hamster named, yup you guessed it, Hamisher. Why have an imaginary friend when you can have an imaginary friend that can fit in your pocket! Colleen went to Wagner College and double majored in English and Studio Art, winning the award of "biggest dork" (aka first in her class) and writing plays which went on to be produced Off-Off-Broadway. Her whole life she always loved reading comics—Calvin and Hobbes, The Far Side, and she wore out her copy of the Muppets: Short, Green and Handsome—but it wasn't until she started to get into webcomics that she also fell in love with the idea of writing comics. Now Colleen lives in New York City and her day job is designing graphic novels for First Second Books while her night job is writing graphic novels about a not-so-imaginary-anymore hyperactive hamster named Hamisher. She thinks the world is a very lovely place.

    "Venable and Yue have concocted another winning entry in the cute Guinea PIG, Pet Shop Private Eye series." --Booklist
    Kirkus Reviews
    "Venable and Yue's Pet Shop Private Eye graphic series continues to charm. Yue's adorable pet-shop fur (and scale) people are just as expressive as their human counterparts, and Venable's gentle mystery and delightful, dry humor will extend Sasspant's fanbase.... Great graphic tales for young readers and animal lovers; long may Sasspants detect!" --Kirkus Reviews
