Deftly mixing laugh-out-loud hilarity with poignant moments, Davies' Waterstones Children's Book Prize-winning gem follows a young girl investigating exactly what fate befell her beloved hamsters.
Winner of the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2010
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'.
