The Great Hamster Massacre
Written by Katie Davies & Illustrated by Hannah Shaw
Simon and Schuster Published 2010 (Series- book 1)
A very natural and honest version of life’s events from the perspective of a young girl – from her suspicions about her neighbours, to her rocky friendship with the girl next door; from the sudden death of her beloved granny to her relentless quest for a pet hamster, only to then find it mysteriously slaughtered – which kickstarts a local investigation of ‘suspects’.
