Whether taking a spin on the Ferris wheel, stopping a burglary in progress, napping at the foot of a mountain, or gazing longingly off into a sunset, Humongous Hamster is a hero every kid will adore. He eats trees like broccoli, gives kids a ride to the park, and scares the neighbor's cat. He is so silly that he's completely irresistible. In the end, though, he misses his human friend. So he will return to normal hamster size . . . until the next time he's humongously hungry!


Praise for My Humongous Hamster

“A kid-pleasing concept.” —BCCB

“A story with a big, irresistible pet.” —Kirkus Reviews
