Helen J Aitken
Helen J Aitken is a mother and freelance broadcaster who’s had a life-long passion for guinea pigs! Helen started writing her collection of tales about Bertie & his pals to entertain her daughter who was born in 2008 and the stories soon became bedtime favourites. Inspired by the antics of Helen’s pets from her own childhood (Bertie and his pal Jenny really were the best of friends and Jenny really did have no squeak!), the stories are narrated by Helen too and they feature the sound of her present day guinea pigs, munching, crunching, rustling and squeaking!
