A very natural and honest version of life's events from the perspective of a young girl - from her suspicions about her neighbours, to her rocky friendship with the girl next door; from the sudden death of her beloved granny to her relentless quest for a pet hamster, only to then find it mysteriously slaughtered - which kickstarts a local investigation of 'suspects'.

5 stars
A hilarious book about a girl and her brother who finally get two hamsters after begging and begging. The problem starts when both hamsters are not both girls as they were told by the shopkeeper. Anna with the help of her friend start an investigation to find out what happened to the hamsters.

Young children will love this although it does deal with bereavement and death of pets.
