Olga da Polga is no guinea pig like all the other guinea pigs. Olga wants to see and experience things. Eventually, Olga is put into a carton. When she summons up all her courage and peeps through a hole in the carton she spots green meadows, fields, hedges and banks full of dandelions. If this is the wide world, then it is definitely more beautiful than the crammed pet shop!
From now on Olga lives in a wonderful watertight house. And she tells stories about her wild and exciting adventures to her new friends Noel the cat, Fangio the hedgehog and Graham the tortoise. Life is never boring since Olga moved in!
