Colleen had an older sister, a dog, a cat, a million fish, and an imaginary pet hamster named, yup you guessed it, Hamisher. Why have an imaginary friend when you can have an imaginary friend that can fit in your pocket! Colleen went to Wagner College and double majored in English and Studio Art, winning the award of "biggest dork" (aka first in her class) and writing plays which went on to be produced Off-Off-Broadway. Her whole life she always loved reading comicsCalvin and Hobbes, The Far Side, and she wore out her copy of the Muppets: Short, Green and Handsomebut it wasn't until she started to get into webcomics that she also fell in love with the idea of writing comics. Now Colleen lives in New York City and her day job is designing graphic novels for First Second Books while her night job is writing graphic novels about a not-so-imaginary-anymore hyperactive hamster named Hamisher. She thinks the world is a very lovely place.Stephanie Yue grew up in the United States, China, and Hong Kong, and went to New York to study illustration.

I thought this series was so cute! I love the animal characters, and the author's sense of humor. Definitely worth reading!
My 8 yr daughter recently received this book for Easter. My entire family enjoyed the illustrations and humorous dialogue in this book! My husband is a fan of graphic novels for adult readers and was impressed with the quality of this book. I'm ordering the next in the series now.
