    I loved Memoirs of a Goldfish so I had to read this one. Told with the same quirky, sarcastic tone this hamster thinks his life is grand living inside his cage with all the essentials. Each day something occurs with Hamster and each day gets a two-page spread in the book with a huge picture and a detail recording of what occurred. When the little girl picks him up and kisses him, he thinks germs but he also gets yogurt drops and they soon become his favorite treat. Pearl the cat comes in and makes up this story about how fantastic the sunroom is with a sunflower seed staircase and yogurt drop flooring and Hamster was practically drooling. Buck the dog loves the sunroom too when Hamster asks him, so Hamster decides he has to see it for himself. “Question: Who’s going to eat every yogurt drop in the sunroom? Answer:ME!” So on Day Ten, Seymour escape plan goes in full swing. By Day Twelve, guess who is making out his will? It’s a funny one and kids will laugh and feel for the little guy. Great illustrations and a book that you and the kids will want to read again and again.

    Life is good for Seymour the hamster. He has a great cage full of fresh, deep shavings, lots of seeds, clean water and, oh, yummy, those wonderful yogurt treats. When his new super-de-duper wheel arrives, well, Seymour is in heaven. As he says, “My life is perfect.” Perfect, that is, until sneaky Pearl the cat tells him a big, fat lie.




    Pearl thinks of Seymour as a tasty snack and all she has to do to enjoy that snack is get the little hamster out of his cage. When she tells him that the sunroom is filled with yogurt drops, the staircase is made of sunflower seeds and there’s plenty of room outside of his cage to run around without a wheel, the trusting hamster decides to escape from his cage. Seymour makes his escape plan, and with a little help from “sweet Pearl,” his freedom is assured. Alas, there are no yogurt drops waiting for him in the sunroom, just a hungry cat.




    Memoirs of a Hamster is one of those rare, wonderful children’s books that gets you laughing on page one and then never stops. Seymour is just so lovable, and the fact that a wheel and yogurt drops are enough to send him into a permanent state of bliss will endear him to everyone. This hamster tale teaches a great lesson on being happy with what you have in a very enjoyable way.




    Quill says: Memoirs of a Hamster is goofy, silly, and a whole lotta fun!
