After generously receiving these books from Penguin Random House, it occurred to me that my children had no idea what a hamster was.
So of course we needed to make a break for the pet store!
After introducing Stormy to the cutest little rodents ever, he swiftly got distracted by the puppies walking down the aisles with their owners. And by the birds. And then by the fish. And also by the lizards.
I wanted to stay and ask questions and learn more, but what can you do when you’ve got a distracted two-year old? Oh, well! At least I caught a photo of this cutie!
She could totally play Harriet in a movie, am I right?
And guess what’s even cuter and more adventurous than this cutie? Harriet herself, of course! Pick up a copy of the gripping -ahem- tails, and watch the saga unfold!

A magical beanstalk leads to a GIANT surprise in book four of Ursula Vernon’s critically acclaimed Hamster Princess series.
Harriet Hamsterbone doesn’t go looking for trouble. Somehow it always finds her. So she isn’t completely shocked when a salesman attempts to sell her some magic beans, or when one of those beans grows into a towering beanstalk leading up into the clouds. But even Harriet is surprised to find a giant castle–complete with one very poetically challenged giant– at the top of it. And she certainly never thought she would make a new friend named Strings who is half harp, half hamster. But Strings isn’t the giant’s guest–she and a rather large goose are his prisoners! This calls for a heroic rescue, and Harriet is just the hamster for the job.
Ursula Vernon is a full-time author and illustrator whose work has won a Hugo award and been nominated for an Eisner. She loves birding, gardening, and spunky heroines, and thinks she would make a terrible princess. Ursula lives with her husband in Pittsboro, North Carolina.
