Synopsis

My Hamster is an Astronaut by Dave Lowe

Benjamin Jinks is a normal boy who hates maths, but dreams of sending his hamster into space. Stinky is a hamster-genius, who has grudgingly accepted Ben's challenge ...But can the pair win the science fair prize ahead of their scheming neighbours? Or will their experiment bring them back down to Earth with a bump? New talent Dave Lowe's second adventure is brilliantly brought to life by illustrator Mark Chambers in this hilarious read.

Reviews

When Ben Jinks announces that he's going to build a rocket for the school science competition, his mega-brainy hamster is more than a little surprised. Stinky realises he will have to do most of the hard work - and be very involved in the launch! But there's a cunning plan afoot to upset their ambitious competition entry. Will Ben and Stinky get their rocket off the ground? This is a very funny story in the fantastic Stinky and Jinks series. Laugh your socks off as Ben and Stinky aim for the stars. families herefordshire and worcestershire
