But then, the hamster darts right out of his cage and goes missing! It's time for Gerry to put on her thinking crown to figure out how to get him back.
With full-color illustrations throughout, this Level 1 early reader is perfect for Very Fairy Princess fans who are ready to take the next step beyond picture books.
