These Guinea Pigs are Dressed Up as Your Fav. Characters – Check out what Role are They Playing

“We are all fools in love” – this apparently also applies guinea pigs. Thanks to Bloomsbury, Jane Austen’s most famous novel is being retold in the most adorable way possible – in a new picture book titled A Guinea Pig Pride and Prejudice.

The book is basically the classic love story paired with some seriously well-dressed rodents. All of your favourite characters are included, they’re just a little bit fuzzier than you may remember them.

For example, here are Lizzie and Darcy

But human Pride & Prejudice fans aren’t the only ones thrilled about the book’s upcoming release. Guinea pigs are also taking to the net to share their excitement. (Yes, actual guinea pigs.)

Here’s Marlin and Gerant shared a snap of themselves with their preview copy.

There also appears to be a “who wore it best?” contest between Hollie the guinea pig and Colin Firth on tumblr. It really is a close call!

“Mrs. Bennet, who had five unmarried daughters, was greatly excited by the arrival of Mr. Bingley in the neighborhood. By all accounts he was young, wonderfully handsome, extremely agreeable and, to crown the whole, he meant to be at the next ball.”

“But at the ball it was his friend Mr. Darcy who soon drew the attention of the room by his fine, tall person, handsome features, noble mien; and the report which was in general circulation within five minutes after his entrance, of his having ten thousand a year and and a large estate in Derbyshire.”

“Mr. Darcy was looked at with great admiration for about half the evening, till he slighted Elizabeth Bennet by refusing to dance with her.

‘She is tolerable,’ he said, ‘but not handsome enough to tempt me.'”

“But as their acquaintance grew over time, Mr. Darcy began to find that Elizabeth’s face was rendered uncommonly intelligent by the beautiful expression of her dark eyes.

“In fact, Darcy had never been so bewitched by any woman as he was by her. He really believed, that were it not for the inferiority of her connections, he should be in some danger.”
