My Hamster is a Spy by Dave Lowe


My Hamster is a Spy by Dave Lowe

A spate of burglaries has hit the neighbourhood, and the Jinks household hasn't been spared. With only a baby monitor, some drawing pins and a penguin-suit to hand, Stinky and Ben put together a plan to catch the criminals. But how will they cope when their scheme starts to unravel? New talent Dave Lowe's third adventure is brilliantly brought to life by illustrator Mark Chambers in this hilarious read.


This is the third instalment of Stinky stories and they are a joy for confident, young readers. Full of humour (Stinky is far cleverer than his owner and has much more attitude, to boot) and banter that will make you laugh out loud, this is a great story that will let young minds go on to imagine their own 007 world of subterfuge and spying. -- Jayne Howarth Daily Post (Wales)

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
