Hamster Gangster


Rocco is no ordinary pet hamster. Tired of being kicked around in a plastic ball, he’s certain of his true destiny: to become a great leader among rodents. Through a mind-boggling mix of debatable genius and happy accident, he mounts a daring escape, heads for the Big City … and joins a fearsome gang of restaurant-raiding sewer rats. Now all that remains is to lead his fellow rodents into greatness – and become the gang’s next Big Cheese! All with a little help from his new best friends, Nev the mouse and his martial arts-obsessed sister, Tina.

When Rocco discovers that the rats’ arch-enemies, the flea-bitten alley cats, are planning an attack, it seems that his moment to shine has arrived. But as he lands himself, his fellow gangsters and his new-found friends in ever-hotter water, he begins to realise that being a superstar action hamster isn’t quite as straightforward as he thought! 

Get ready for furious foxes, crazy killer cooks and a double-crossing pigeon named Francis. Just some of the colourful characters in a tale of big dreams, bigger blunders – and refusing to let others make you feel small. A funny, action-packed and unexpectedly heart-warming story for readers aged 8+.

Brilliant Books

You can’t help but love Rocco, the slightly haphazard star of Hamster Gangster. His combination of courage, loyalty and innocence lead him into all kinds of dicey situations. He makes some brilliant friends along the way and shows relentless adaptability and determination, even if his hopes and dreams need a rethink. The characters are very well drawn, each with unique personalities, the settings are so real you can smell them and the plot is both thrilling and fulfilling. I'm looking forward to the author's next book.
