“®eaders will soon be caught up in the awkward, cheerful, pompous world of Hamster and his buddies.”—Booklist
“Martin’s simple, subtle depictions…adorn Desbordes’ unconventional, comical dialogue. A blunt, at times knee-slapping story suitable for perceptive young readers, those unsure of social cues, and global readers alike.”―Kirkus Reviews
