Harriet the hamster has a problem. All around her at Hamster World, hamsters are being adopted, while she and her sister can't even seem to get noticed.
Then one day, she finds the answer. She will go from hamster to glamster! with a fabulous hamster makeover. With a little bit of carrot seed oil, whisker extensions, and a two-tone claw polish, all her dreams will come true -- or will they?
"Children will love this silly story about an adorable hamster who tries to make herself more popular. It is disheartening to live at Hamster World awaiting adoption and never be chosen. Harriet and her sister Patricia have watched their friends leave and Harriet feels she needs to do something to be noticed.... The story is filled with clever details and laugh-out-loud humor, but the underlying message of self-acceptance is an important one for children to hear. Unquestionably, libraries or classrooms with pet hamsters will want to purchase this title for their collections, but don't overlook its use as a starting point for discussions about popularity and love." — Mary Hazelton, School Library Journal
