KIRKUS REVIEW

A hamster of auspicious lineage and modest accomplishments wants to be famous like Grandpere, explores the house outside his wall-hung cottage, and falls asleep before he finds out if his adventures have made the morning paper. C'est tout, and Monsieur Bussy clambering over the rungs of a chair (""an immense forest""), taking a pot boiling for a volcano spitting flames, is hardly newsworthy. The large, rather antiseptic illustrations lack finesse, the story lacks substance.
