Product description

Review

'There's a Hamster in my Pocket' fairly fizzes off the page. No one better captures the realism of urban children's lives and weaves it with their inner worlds to such sparkling effect. (Dr Gillian Klein, editor of Race Equality Teaching and director of Trentham Books)

This is a buzzy good read, full of funny twists and turns that end up well. (Armadillo Magazine)

A very funny story with just enough suspense to keep the reader's attention. The characters are believable and children readily identify withtheir worries. A good book for children setting out to read chapter stories by themselves. (Parents in Touch)

A great read with short, illustrated chapters always ending on a cliffhanger and a neat, satisfying ending. (Carousel)

The book says a lot for friendship between the two different cultures as well as for family dynamics - what the children fear often turns out for the best, if only they new it! The ending of the book satisfies all parties, and will be enjoyed by readers. (School Librarian)

Examines friendship through mystery, humour and a menagerie of animals. (Shortlisted for 2011 Scottish Children's Book Awards) (TESS)

For newly confident readers, 'There's a Hamster in My Pocket' is just about perfect - a laugh-out-loud tale about pets, deadly curses and eccentric families. (Scotland on Sunday)
