Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carol Ann Lloyd-Stanger
Freddy is thrilled it is his turn to take the class hamster home next weekend. Even though his mom does not allow animals in the house, Freddy assures his teacher he can take Harold. He manages to convince his mom everything will be fine because he will keep Harold in his cage and take really good care of him. He invites his friend Robbie to spend the weekend and help take care of Harold and even agrees to let his sister help. But in the middle of the night, Freddy wakes up to discover Harold is gone. The house is full of excellent hamster hideouts. How can Freddy and Robbie find the small pet? And can they trust Suzie to help them look without snitching to Mom and Dad? This title in the "Ready, Freddy" reading series has an engaging story with plenty of humor and kid-size adventures. McKinley's illustrations do a great job displaying the personalities of the characters. Readers can continue the fun with enrichment activities at the end of the book.
