 A cheerful, school-based comic story for transitional readers who are just starting to read longer books. When Song Lee brings her pet hamster, Yi, to school, the whole class immediately falls in love with him. But then one day, Yi is missing from his cage, and the children from Room 2B join together in a massive hamster hunt: They put up signs, set out Havahart traps, tempt the missing hamster with homemade peanut butter cookies. Amusing characterizations, snappy dialogue, and a happy ending give this breezy little story the appeal of a good television sitcom. (Fiction. 7-10)
