About the Book

The latest pet-themed picture book from Roald Dahl Funny Prize-winning author Peter Bently and the incredibly talented illustrator John Bond, creators of Dogs in Disguise.

A fun-filled look into the hilarious and heroic world of hamsters, as they battle their greatest enemies, the guinea-pigs!

From the award-winning author and illustrator duo behind Dogs in Disguise and Cats in Chaos, Peter Bently and John Bond now turn their attention to the smallest – but mightiest – of all pets – the hamster! Filled with unexpected animal antics, high-octane drama and endless humour, this overlooked little creature is taking centre stage as never before in the greatest pet showdown yet.

This jaunty rhyming text from hugely popular author Peter Bently, with brilliantly witty illustrations from John Bond, creator of the Mini Rabbit books, will have children laughing out loud!

Critical Praise

Praise for Dogs in Disguise:

‘A rambunctious rhyming picture-book romp ideal for fans of the “Oi!” books, full of ingenious pooches and some truly outrageous rhymes (think schnauzers in trousers and shih-tzus doing ju-jitsu). Bond’s trademark wide, staring eyes and bright block colours perfectly complement Bently’s bouncing text.’ Guardian

‘This gleeful, absurd and beautifully drawn book should be on every Christmas list’ The Big Issue

'Laugh-out-loud funny!' Independent

‘An extremely well-crafted and fun story time book that will have children asking for repeat reads again and again.’ BookTrust

Praise for Mini Rabbit Not Lost by John Bond:

“Mixes silliness with a Jon Klassen-like note of piquant peril . . . and an unexpected final twist make(s) for great appeal.” Guardian

‘John Bond brilliantly captures the single-mindedness of small children…little readers will certainly want seconds.’

“Adorable . . . a really sweet story with absolutely stunning illustrations” BookTrust

Praise for Mini Rabbit Must Help by John Bond:

“Lively colourful illustrations . . . A Charming and witty book” BookTrust
