Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Childhood is a marvelous time to learn about small pets and their care. Hamster and gerbils are small, warm and cuddly. The reader is given a brief, interesting history of their popularity as household pets. The various breeds are discussed and color photographs help children see which variety they might like to own. The prospective or new pet owner will find feeding and cleaning information along with ideas for toys, handling techniques and even even description of techniques for weighing hamsters and gerbils. Fun facts such as average litter size, mating habits and amounts of food stored are found at the end of the book. A bibliography and website addresses will help the reader find more information about these charming small pets. As a librarian, I didn't realize that "The Monster Blood" series by R. L. Stine features Cuddles the Hamster, adding a new dimension to hamster lore. This book is part of the "Perfect Pets" series. 2001, Benchmark Books, $22.79. Ages 4 to 12. Reviewer: Barbara Youngblood
School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-Both of these attractive series entries begin with a history of the animal and information on how it made the transition from wild to domestic life. Next is a general discussion about the creature, including mention of the different varieties and care and feeding. The texts are presented in continuous blocks, occasionally broken by sidebars that contain an anecdote or interesting facts. At times, these asides disrupt the flow of the narratives, making them a bit difficult to follow, but in general, the writing is clear and informative, with unfamiliar terms boldfaced and defined in a glossary. The last portion of each book provides useful tips about training one's pet. These sections are probably the strongest assets, as they provide the most detail. Because the rest of the information is fairly general, readers seeking more in-depth advice would be better served by the "ASPCA Pet Care Guides for Kids" series (DK) or entries in the "True Books" series (Children's), such as Elaine Landau's Parrots and Parakeets as Pets (1997). Colorful, nicely detailed, framed photographs and reproductions of the animals are interspersed throughout. These interesting books would be good starting points for research and will appeal to both casual browsers and young pet enthusiasts.-Arwen Marshall, formerly at New York Public Library Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
