    One thought on “Return of the Hungry Hamster”

    1. Cute story about a boy who is given an Egyptian Amulet of Anubis by his uncle which makes him the protector of undead pets. In this book an undead hamster comes to him looking for help at fixing unresolved issues from before his death so he can pass fully over to the other side. This book is light hearted and fun though a little slow in spots. The story is great and could be a really engaging idea but doesn't move along as smoothly as I would have liked. There are places where the excitement kin [...]

    2. You can probably tell that this book is aimed at a much younger audience than me but as an adult I did enjoy it as a short, guilty pleasure read.Return of the hungry hamster was a fun read, and is actually a story unlike anything I've come across before.It was written well, with humour I think the age group it's aimed at will find hilarious and the black and grey pictures throughout make it a perfect transition book, from picture books in to books for younger readers.It's also not too long so it [...]

    3. Read this in Swedish, it's zombie animals for kids. It looks more exciting than it is, but I think kids will think it's fun. It reminded me of the old Bunnicula books where the bunny vampire sucks on vegetables. More cute than scary. The story is about a boy who gets a special amulet from his uncle and wishes for a pet, but he gets a zombie hamster. The hamster is annoying and talks and no one else can see him, so really he's more of a ghost hamster. I thought that was a little boring. So, it's [...]

    4. To me the story here was a bit bland. I was reading it with my 6-year-old daughter. The plot plods along and the book doesn't end properly as it sets up for the next adventure in the series.The plot - schoolboy Joe gets a present from his uncle Charlie who is an explorer. The present is the Amulet of Anubis which allows the user one wish. So far this is ok with a little bit of magic in the mix. Joe uses it to wish for a pet but gets an undead hamster instead. The hamster and Joe spend the next u [...]

    5. Joe can't have any pets at all because his mother is severely allergic. He has an eccentric traveling Uncle Charlie that inadvertently gives him access to an unusual type of pet. Zombie pets! Thanks to an ancient Egyptian amulet, Joe is now the Protector of Undead Pets. First on the agenda is Dumpling. He is a hamster that died an untimely death by vacuum cleaner. Dumpling can't pass on to hamster heaven because he is too worried about his former owner. Joe is willing to help, especially after D [...]

    6. When Joe's Uncle Charlie gives him an Egyptian amulet, it comes with a warning to be careful how he uses the gift. Joe doesn't listen, and his wish for a pet brings him an undead hamster intent on easing the suffering of his owner. As Joe reluctantly agrees to help Dumpling, he stumbles on the truth behind the hamster's demise and its aftermath. There is quite a bit of humor in the book, and Joe is drawn into Dumpling's plight despite his initial reluctance. The first title in a series planned a [...]

    7. Here is why I love this: My second and third graders are constantly asking for scary books. It's very hard to find books that I think are age-appropriate in content but fit what they're looking for. This series fits that creepy category, but it's really just adorable and totally appropriate for that age group. And even better, I actually enjoy the illustrations! I can't wait to order this series for my library!4.5 stars

    8. Terrible. A zombie hamster eats its way through this book until it fades away happily. Nothing about this book appealed to me, and I have difficulty thinking it would appeal to eight year olds. But there is no accounting for taste. This book makes the Captain Underpants books look like masterpieces of wit and maybe even wisdom.

    9. This was a really funny book that I started reading as a goodnight story for my stepson and ended up reading it for myself.I or my hubby will finished the book to my stepson so they both get to know what is going to happen.
