Hamsters to the Rescue
By Ellen Stoll Walsh
(Harcourt Children's Books, Hardcover, 9780152052027, 40pp.)
Publication Date: September 2005
Henry and Pell have plenty of determination and courage. Never mind that they're just a couple of hamsters. They're hamsters with a mission--they found a feather and need to return it to the seagull that lost it. Nothing they encounter along the way will stop them. Not giant sand dunes. Not cranky crabs. Not even the big scary seagull himself!
Ellen Stoll Walsh's gently suspenseful story about perseverance includes a fun seek-and-find shell game at the end of the book.
