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+.

Looking forward to doing a reading and book signing event at Dilley Dalley Books, a brand new children's bookshop in Irvine, Ayrshire, at 12 noon on Saturday 27 April. Come along to hear extracts from my debut novel, Hamster Gangster, and get your signed copy.

Angela Robb lives in Stirlingshire, Scotland, and likes nothing better than getting thoroughly lost in the landscape. She studied in Glasgow and Edinburgh and still spends plenty of time in both, soaking up ideas for settings and stories. Small furry pets are, she has discovered, another source of inspiration. Hamster Gangster is her first novel.
