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.
