The Hamster Book

By Silvia Borando
Illustrated by Silvia Borando

I am a minibombo book: a little book buzzing with a big idea.

If you have always wanted a pet, but your parents have never let you ... this is the book for you. Because, inside the pages of this book, your new hamster awaits. Isn’t she cute? Just look at her ruffly fur! As a pet-owner, it’s your job to tickle her tummy (with your finger), watch her tricks (give her a cheer!) and clean up after her, too (but don’t forget to use a tissue!). It’s hard work – phew! – but it's so much fun. From minibombo, the creators of The White Book and Black Cat, White Cat comes a playful picture book that cleverly encourages you to interact with the physicality of the page itself, and a book that will, with your imagination, bring a sunflower seed-eating, fuzzy furball of a hamster to life. Squeak! Check out www.minibombo.com to find plenty of fun ideas for playing and creating inspired by this book!

  • Look out for The Cat Book and The Dog Book – the other titles in the Paper Pets series
  • An interactive concept book for all animal lovers! Should have huge appeal to fans of Hervé Tullet’s Press Here, Richard Byrne's This book just ate my dog! and Mo Willems' Pigeon books
  • A clever and clear design which makes use of black and coloured type makes the interactivity very accessible: the coloured type always a direct instruction to the reader
