The Reflections of a Solitary Hamster

Astrid Desbordes, Pauline Martin, Linda Burgess, Penelope Todd

An endearing book all about friendship. Give and take, laugh and reflect along with Hamster and his ever-patient friendsa The friendship between a group of forest animals is brought to life in this enchanting book of comic-strips. Hamster is the selfish and narcissistic main character surrounded by affectionate friends who love him, warts and all. We all have friends or family members like this, who we love in spite of their annoying characteristics. Philosophical, ironic and terribly funny, The Reflections of a Solitary Hamster will appeal to thoughtful readers - young and old.


Take one narcissistic and arrogant hamster who won’t share his waffles; a slow-moving snail; a short-sighted mole who aspires to be a writer; a hedgehog who wishes he had soft fur instead of spines; an admiring squirrel and a rabbit who might steal some of Hamster’s limelight, and you have Reflections of a Solitary Hamster, a wistful and funny graphic novel.

This book will appeal to all ages: young readers will delight in its large, bold format and cute animals, and older readers will relate to the angst and philosophising of the forest friends. Reflections is composed of a series of very short vignettes that build a very whimsical and funny world.
