Reflections of a Solitary Hamster

By Astrid Desbordes
Illustrated by Pauline Martin

An endearing book all about friendship.

Give and take, laugh and reflect along with Hamster and his ever-patient friends… The friendship between a group of forest animals is brought to life in this enchanting book of comicstrips. Hamster is the selfish and narcissistic main character surrounded by affectionate friends who love him, warts and all. We all have friends or family members like this, who we love in spite of their annoying characteristics. Philosophical, ironic and terribly funny, Reflections of a Solitary Hamster will appeal to thoughtful readers – young and old.

  • A humorous take on French philosopher Jean- Jacques Rousseau’s Reveries of a Solitary Walker
  • Themes of friendship, sharing, and recognising the things we give and receive from those we love
  • Subversive humour
