Who would have thought that a writer's life could be so dangerous! Only the inimitable Freddy could turn a series of harrowing adventures into fodder for a spectacular sequel.

Even a brilliant hamster can be prone to lapses of judgment. Which is how Freddy came to post his autobiography on the Internet (after all, a writer needs an audience). Lo, it was a bad move. For when an evil scientist discovers Freddy's genius he hamster-naps him to experiment on his brain! Can a wise tomcat, a pair of guinea pig poets, & a colony of rats save Freddy from becoming a casualty of science? This heart-stopping episode in Freddy's life story is every bit as captivating as Freddy himself. "This second book in the saga stands on its own." - School Library Journal

About the Author

Dietlof Reiche's middle-grade and young adult novels have garnered many awards in his native Germany, including the German Juvenile Literature Award and the Oldenburg's Children's Book Prize.

Born in Dresden, Germany, in 1942, Reiche spent his early childhood in the village of Nördlingen, the town where his first historical novel Der Bleisiegelfälscher (The Lead Seal Counterfeiter), is set. Before becoming a full-time writer of children's books, Reiche studied engineering. He later took an academic position at Darmstadt Technical University, followed by studies in sociology, and work as a graphic designer.

Many of Reiche's books are historical fiction, but he also enjoys mixing history with fantastic elements, and often brings his wonderful sense of humor and his concern for the environment to his books.

In Reiche's exciting new novel Ghost Ship, he blends contemporary life with history and the supernatural to create one captivating adventure. His Golden Hamster Saga series: I, Freddy; Freddy in Peril; Freddy to the Rescue; and the forthcoming, Freddy and the Ferocious Ferrets is hilariously narrated by Freddy the Golden hamster, and was inspired by memories of the numerous pet hamsters Reiche had as a child.

Dietlof Reiche lives with his wife in Hamburg, Germany.

Mr Cepeda received his BFA in illustration from California State University, Long Beach in 1992 and also studied Engineering at Cornell University. He is the illustrator of awarding-winning picture books such as What a Truly Cool World and Nappy Hair.
