Time Out Chicago Kids Reviews "Memoirs of a Hamster"
Time Out Chicago Kids (Mar 2013)
Who’s the luckiest hamster in the world? Seymour is. At least that’s what he believes, living the good life relaxing in his wood shavings, munching yogurt drops and running on his wheel. His happiness fades after Pearl, the sly cat, taunts Seymour with visions of a sunroom brimming with yogurt. So Seymour plots a daring escape from his caged paradise—into dangers he never imagined. As in the duo’s preceding Memoirs of a Goldfish, many of Bowers’s intricate illustrations fill two pages. That scale captures Seymour’s smallness, and Scillian’s tenderhearted writing renders his big personality.
