"[Daydreams of a Solitary Hamster] manages to get to the true essence of existence, even the existence of a solitary (slightly self-important) hamster. What can be more important than sharing laughter, music, and good times with friends? Kids of all ages will love Daydreams if a Solitary Hamster, if they can get it away from their parents long enough to read it themselves." - The Midwest Book Review
