"Sam loved George Washington more than anything else at school." When the class takes a trip to the science museum, Sam takes the hamster with him. After a visit to the planetarium, the wind tunnel and other sites, Sam takes the hamster to the Animal Zone. George Washington jumps out of Sam's arms and into the hamster habitat. Sam's secret is out. How will he distinguish George Washington from the other hamsters? Kenah has left some clues in the text for the astute reader to follow.
