My Humongous Hamster

Reviewed by:

Young children’s vivid imagination provide the inspiration for this zany circular tall tale of a child imagining if his pet hamster got bigger and BIGGER. The photoshopped overgrown hamster allows young readers to envision what fun and how frightening life might be like if your pet grew exponentially.The oversized text matches with the oversized hamster. Better photographic techniques would improve some of the images which appear a bit blurry or pixelated. This book can provide a wonderful example to inspire young writers with ideas for writing their own modern tall tale.
