Pumpkin the Hamster
First sentence: The old-fashioned telephone on Peanut's desk began to ring.
Premise/plot: This is the sixth book in the Dr. KittyCat series by Jane Clarke. In this one, Dr. KittyCat and Peanut take a group of small animals on a stargazing adventure. On the trip, Pumpkin--the hamster--trips and falls into a hole. Fortunately, he's surrounded by animals--including the doctor--who know how to bandage legs. Why did Pumpkin trip in the dark? Well, it turns out that Pumpkin has bad vision and needs glasses.
My thoughts: I really LOVED this one. I do love the series as a whole. I admit I am very partial and not all that objective. I think this is the most adorable chapter book series for young readers ever. I liked Pumpkin the hamster. I love hamsters, perhaps not as much as cats, but a great deal. Peanuts is definitely growing on me more and more with each book. In this one Peanuts gets to be the hero!
