4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant guide for first time hamster owners 24 Aug 2007
I bought this book a few weeks ago and at first was shocked a little by how thin the book is... however the information provided is VAST and very helpful! I've read a couple of other hamster care guides and this is the best one I've found. One small downfall is the fact that it contains a few american-ism's including an example price list in U.S. dollars but that can be overlooked. The information is easy to take in and includes fun little facts you usually wouldn't find.

I would recommend this book to adults rather than children due to the amount of text and very few pictures. I think it would be especially useful to parents with children longing for a hamster.

An entertaining, helpful, novelty book ... the only reason I have rated it four stars rather than five is that as I mentioned earlier it only contains a couple of photos, which are black and white. Although the book does contain a list of helpful websites, most with cute pictures on them.

All I can say now is enjoy the book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book 24 Nov 2013
I have a few dummies books and this one is as good as the others. Good lay out with easy to read and understandable text.
Knowledgeable content, can ignore americanisms and pictures are fine in black and white. To me the info is more important.
