Praise

“A winning, funny animal story; the broad appeal of its subject combined with its demanding style makes it especially appropriate for reading out loud.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred

“Houdini’s adventures are amusing, and his vanity and puzzlement over the curious ways of humans endow him with a memorable and quirky personality.”—The Horn Book Magazine

“The author . . . has slipped into the hide of the hamster and seems to understand these small creatures completely and creates a tantalizing journey. This is pure fun and full of slapstick exaggeration. . . . There are dramatic moments and cliffhangers, but since this hamster’s name is Houdini, readers can count on a grand finale.”—Publishers Weekly
