Harriet Hamsterbone is not your typical princess. She may be quite stunning in the rodent realm (you'll have to trust her on this one), but she is not so great at trailing around the palace looking ethereal or sighing a lot. She finds the royal life rather...dull. One day, though, Harriet's parents tell her of the curse that a rat placed on her at birth, dooming her to prick her finger on a hamster wheel when she's twelve and fall into a deep sleep. For Harriet, this is most wonderful news: It means she's invincible until she's twelve! After all, no good curse goes to waste. And so begins a grand life of adventure with her trusty riding quail, Mumfrey...until her twelfth birthday arrives and the curse manifests in a most unexpected way.

"[A] charming, funny, subversive middle-grade illustrated fantasy." -- Cory Doctorow, New York Times bestselling author, activist, and co-editor of Boing Boing

* "A joy to read, and we can only hope that Harriet - long may she reign - will return in later installments." --Booklist, starred review

* "Move over, Babymouse, there's a new rodent in town!...Vernon has created a spunky heroine readers will cheer for and who will leave them eagerly searching for the happily ever after in the next installment." --School Library Journal, starred review

* "Harriet is her own hamster, but she takes her place proudly alongside both Danny Dragonbreath and Babymouse. Creatively fresh and feminist, with laughs on every single page." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "A book with all the makings of a hit. Readers will be laughing themselves silly." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Middle-graders with a taste for absurdity and snark will find plenty of both here...Fans of Holm's Babymouse (Babymouse: Queen of the World, BCCB 12/05) series or Vernon's Dragonbreath (BCCB 9/09) series will definitely want to tag along on Harriet's future adventures." --BCCB
