A charming young graphic novel-hybrid starring best friends Hammy and Gerbee. Bonus: science and history facts on Egypt!

Things are looking up for best friends Hammy and Gerbee-a hamster and a gerbil-when they find out they're both in Miss Capybara's class. But it's not long before school becomes a battle between the good (Hammy and Gerbee), the bad (spelling bees and pop quizzes), and the evil (mice twins Anna and Hanna). Can things get any worse? Or mischievous? Yep! They're going on a field trip to the science museum. What are two rodent friends to do but find their own fun (and trouble)?

This is a terrific stepping stone for kids who are excited about graphic novels but not yet ready to tackle longer formats.

A Christy Ottaviano Book

Editorial Reviews

"Cuddly characters will certainly catch the eyes of fans of Jennifer L. and Matthew Holm's Babymouse or Jarrett J. Krosoczka's Lunch Lady series. This is a guffaw-generating romp that should not gather any dust on the shelf. A sparkling series opener certain to captivate a broad audience."--Kirkus Reviews"Yee's loose, scribbly line makes for adorable figures; Miss Cap's whipped-cream hairdo and cat's-eye glasses are particularly fetching. . . congenial entertainment . . . and fans of broad humor will be satisfied."--Publishers Weekly"The bordering-on-irreverent fun will be right up the alley of his targeted age group, and the simple, friendly figures that fill out the inventively composed comic pages will draw them right in. An excellent balance between Yee's own early reader sensibilities and the zany highjinks of Jennifer and Matthew Holm's Babymouse."--Booklist"Fans of Jarrett J. Krosoczka's "Lunch Lady," Drew Brockington's "CatStronauts," and Ashley Spires's "Binky" will enjoy the animal antics and look forward to future installments in the series. A funny stepping stone for newer comics readers and a welcome addition to all children's comics collections."--School Library Journal"The book's nine short, fast-paced sections will keep new readers engaged; and with easy-to-follow sequences . . . it may draw reluctant readers into the fold. Babymouse fans may find enjoyment here."--The Horn Book
