The fourth in a series of books about the much-loved guinea-pig, Olga da Polga. Olga was in a jam. In fact, that day she had been in a number of different jams, each worse than the one before, until her mind was in such a whirl she didn't know which way to turn. Olga is a very busy guinea-pig. She attempts to save the Sawdust family from the effects of a drought, she participates in a sponsered squeak, and she even takes up jogging. But somehow she always manages to find time to delight her friends with her tall tales and far-fetched stories.
