Real Hamsters Don't Bite
Real Hamsters Don't Bite by Alexis Cleoford is an imaginative and charming children's book featuring two feline brothers.
This story is written from the point of view of a kitty named Mighty. I love his descriptions of his life experiences, whether he's talking about chasing sunlight or how he and his brother, Brennon, spend their days: "My life is almost purrfect." His insights seem distinctly feline: "Purring feels like blankets made of the fuzziest velvet."
At the beginning of the story he says to keep reading if we want to know how awesome cats are. Of course, most of us know this already but he does a great job of reinforcing that point. Mighty and Brennon set out on an adventure in their quest to find Cat Land, a perfect place for cats. Their trek encompasses all kinds of adventure and characters.
The end promises a new adventure for Mighty and Brennon.
