A boastful hamster with exceptional talent as an escape artist recounts his experiences chewing, wriggling, or squeezing his way out of various closed areas in his quest for the great Outside.
“Houdini’s adventures are amusing, and his vanity and puzzlement over the curious ways of humans endow him with a memorable and quirky personality.”—The Horn Book Magazine
“The author . . . has slipped into the hide of the hamster and seems to understand these small creatures completely and creates a tantalizing journey. This is pure fun and full of slapstick exaggeration. . . . There are dramatic moments and cliffhangers, but since this hamster’s name is Houdini, readers can count on a grand finale.”—Publishers Weekly
From the Hardcover edition.
