LoveReading View on Return of the Hungry Hamster

Madcap and funny adventure involving a boy called Joe and an undead hamster and only Joe can do something about it. 

Joe's uncle is an explorer and traveller and on his return from Egypt he brings Joe a gift - an amulet.  Joe loves it as it looks like a dog and as his mum is allergic he's not allowed one. As his uncle departs for yet another adventure he tells Joe that the amulet is very special and it will grant him a wish! That was easy as far as Joe was concerned - he had to have a pet so that is what he wished for. That's when the problems started.  Scratching noises under his bed and Joe came face to face with a hamster - an undead one that had got stuck between life and death... and all because of the amulet.  And only Joe could sort it.  Join him on his very funny adventures.
