Henry and Pell are two (small, brown) hamsters that are having an adventurous day on the beach. With a small discovery, a feather, the two determine to return it to its owner...a seagull. The two hamsters happily chat with the various animals they encounter on their search including hermit crabs and fiddler crabs before they meet the sea gull. They don't fear the sea gull until they see how big he is. But the sea gull assures them both with a "deep-down rumbly laugh" that he is a friendly bird that doesn't eat hamsters--especially kind hamsters who return feathers. "I'm not going to eat you. And I grow new feathers when old ones fall out. But thank you for bringing my feather to me. Your kindess makes me happy." The sea gull then presents the hamsters with feathers that are just their size so they can pretend to be birds and fly.
While I think the text (and premise) of the story is at best silly and at worst a bit on the dumb side, I still enjoy the illustrations. I am just less convinced than the back cover which advertises "two furry heroes who discover the meaning of perseverance and courage."
The story line is a little silly.
I recommend this book to all animal lovers. There aren't many books that focus on hamsters and this one is really cute.
