Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Teresa Bateman creatively addresses a very delicate subject with a dedicated pet and a hard-working boy in this fun poetic narrative. Young Harry loves his junk food; he and his parents pig out in front of the TV after school and work and any other time they please. As Bob the Hamster watches their dangerous dietary patterns develop, he devises a plan to intervene. One day an unexpected invitation comes for Harry to attend camp. Upon arriving at camp, Harry magically turns into a hamster! As he and the other campers experience their new lives, they learn about exercise and proper dietary behaviors. Surprisingly, they love their new habits! Romping, playing, and eating their veggies turn out to be amazingly enjoyable activities! Harry maintains his new way of living when he returns home and even demonstrates a healthier lifestyle for his parents. This colorful picture book can help break the treacherous ice of a weight loss discussion in health class or in a home. It can aid in the development of new patterns of eating and exercising. 2005, Albert Whitman and Company, Ages 7 to 12.
—Kara Byrne
School Library Journal
K-Gr 4-Harry loves to watch television and eat junk food, and he hates exercise. His parents are heading down the same slippery slope. His hamster, Bob, doesn't like what he sees, so he takes action, cell phone in paw. Then Harry's parents receive an unexpected package from Hamster Camp, and soon Harry and Bob are on their way. Once there, the children turn into hamsters and are led through a month of hamster meals and activities, including racing in plastic balls and running mazes. Harry "even liked to run the wheel-/he'd make that baby twirl,/then hang on tight with all his might/and watch the world a-whirl." For the trip home, the campers get new belts to hold up their shorts. Harry keeps up his new habits, and his parents realize that they need to change theirs, too. Cote's friendly color illustrations add to the positive message of this story. A humorous and useful title for those needing to drive home the importance of diet and exercise.-Linda Staskus, Parma Regional Library, OH Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

    learning about healthy lifestyles

    This a great story that can be used to open conversations about healthy lifestyles choices. It can get kids up and moving, doing their best hamster imitations. Cote's fun and colorful illustrations hammer the point home.
