The Great Hamster Massacre
Winner of the Waterstone’s Children’s Book Prize 2010.
A detective story with a difference! Things in Anna’s life are going completely crazy. Her neighbours are behaving suspiciously, the girl next door keeps falling out with her, and then Gran suddenly dies. So when Anna’s hamster is mysteriously slaughtered, it’s the last straw. Who is the culprit? Anna vows to find out. But the search will take her into all kinds of comical and unexpected terrain, teaching her many lessons about life and family… A wonderfully fresh comedy from a former stand-up comedian, which explores life, love and tragedy in a quirky and lighthearted way.
