About the Author & Illustrator
When Room 2D gets a new pet the students are ecstatic and eager to hold Fluffity, but Mr. Drake warns them that she's too little for now. However, the day he oversleeps the children decide to take Fluffity out of her cage. That's when unexpected chaos ensues.
I adored this story! First of all it's told in rhyme, which is my favorite for children's books as it improves reading skills and helps children detect the phonetic constituents of words. Secondly, humor in picture books is another aspect I enjoy so when that darling little hamster snapped and terrorized the students I laughed out loud. Lastly, the amazing illustrations were so detailed and vivid I found myself lingering on each page to take it all in. Kudos to a book well done!
I highly recommend picking up a copy.
