The Misadventures of Sweetie Pie - Chris Van Allsburg

The last hamster left for sale, Sweetie Pie is determined to be loveable enough that a child will take him home. However, when he finally succeeds, he discovers that things aren’t as friendly as he imagined outside the pet store. He’s roughhoused and neglected and passed from kid to kid until he ends up a classroom pet. Finally loved and cared for, Sweetie Pie still isn’t content. Stuck on the classroom windowsill, he wants nothing more than a life outside. Acclaimed author and illustrator Chris Van Allsburg brings his trademark care and detail to The Misadventures of Sweetie Pie (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $18.99), which are many and varied, but after struggling through them, Sweetie Pie may just get a chance at the life he’s always dreamed of.  Ages 5-8.
