I always loved "Wump World" by Bill Peet and read it over and over as a kid. Later as a teenager I went to an animal sanctuary and saw a Capybara for the first time and thought it was just like a Wump come to life. Imagine how psyched I was to find out Wumps were actually based on Capybaras and Bill Peet had one!

SPOILERS: I don't think animal cruelty should be taken lightly and when that kid kicked poor Capybobby it was glossed over like no big deal. Luckily Capyboppy wasn't badly injured but still it was uncalled for and inhumane. To top it off, clearly that capybara wasn't getting the proper habitat needed to thrive. The author acknowledges this at least. The they end up giving Boppy to the zoo and even there the staff didn't take proper recourse to keep him healthy and happy which is heartbreaking & tragic -again the book either glossed over what happened after the zoo or it was written before Capyboppy ultimately was killed there by another animal. I know the family did love and tried to care for their pet but they didn't end up finding the right home for him.

Conclusion: There are animal sanctuaries that now know how to properly care for these little guys but they are few and hard to find. Back when this book was written there were even less options. This book is a good reminder that one needs to understand the true nature of an exotic animal before adopting one and to only do so if you can afford the expenses, have the proper space/enclosure and habitat, an experienced local vet that can assist in caring for the animal's health when needed, a humanely sourced adoption option obtained within state legality standards and even the proper ownership permit/license where applicable.

I suggest "Wump World" as a better option although this is a well-illustrated story, it's hard to get through all the needless hardship this little capy had to endure.

Bill Peet was a wonderful author and illustrator. This book, which chronicles the joys, trials and tribulations of keeping a capybara as a pet, is based on the author's own experience. I bought this book for some relatives after they visited the San Diego Zoo and encountered the capybara there. They loved it. I would recommend this book and most all of Bill Peet's offerings as very worthwhile for children and adults.

When we got our pet capybara, Caplin Rous, this book served as a valuable guide for how to take care of a pet capybara. In many ways Caplin is very much like Capyboppy and in other ways he is quite different. It was hilarious when Caplin did something where he looked like one of the wonderful illustrations of Capyboppy in this book. We got him an inner tube just so we could see him sit in it. Turns out he loves that inner tube but we keep it in his pool.

Great lessons in this book, combined with charmingly gentle humor Bill Peet, writer of Disney's Sword and the Stone, was so famous for. Good lesson for kids: don't get a high maintenance, wild animal for a pet if you are not prepared to take care of it properly, and research your pet to see if it's a fit for your family. Understand all that is involved. This is one of my favorite Bill Peet books. This is a very sweet book, and one of my children's favorites too.
  • Shomeshet
Cute story, but not one of Bill Peets best. However, biographical and therefore it is a different genre. Still worth having and reading to the kids - or in our case, grandkids.
  • Cordanius
Same as it was when I was a kid, and now I am enjoying it with my kids. And a decent lesson (even though a now dated one) about bringing home animals before really understanding their needs and behaviors, and how those fit with what you can provide.

I think I like this more than my son (8) does. Illustrations aren't in color, maybe that's why he's a little bored. more of a book you would read TO your child than give to a child to read on their own.
Great book! Wonderful story! I highly recommend this for children ages 3 & up! This is a simple story. More stories should be written like this today.
