It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! Today we are joining the Kid Lit version of It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading? hosted by Unleashing Readers and Teach Mentor Texts.

*Disclaimer: I was given a PDF copy of Real Hamsters Don’t Bite in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are my own.

Real Hamsters Don’t Bite: Mighty and Brennon Run Away to FInd Cat Land and Unzip the Truth by Alexis Cleoford is a wonderful children’s book. It is a chapter book for grades 4-9, but could easily be read aloud to younger children as well and is even fun for adults.

Two cats, Brennon and Mighty are not happy about having to stay at a Pet Hotel so once their parents pick them up from there, they decided to run away and find Cat Land where cats are treated the way they wish to be treated. Along the way, they discover cats are being tortured by hamsters and decide to put a stop to that.

I enjoyed the writing style as well as little bits of information about cats that children will learn as they read the story. For example, we learn some foods are poisonous to cats like onions. I highly recommend this book for any age. I look forward to reading more in the series and introducing my great-niece to it, but she is only 1 year and 7 months old so I will have to wait a bit for that. You can buy a Kindle copy for only $2.99 at Amazon.

We are also joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays blog hop.

Be sure to stop by tomorrow, Phoebe is having a contest and the winner will get some catnip toys and a catnip mat.
