Hamster Princess: Of Mice and Magic
I think that Hamster Princess: Of Mice and Magic is a great book. It is about when Harriet Hamsterbone sets out to undo the curse of the twelve dancing mice princesses. They have been cursed to dance all night.
Before we get to the book, let’s talk a little bit more about Harriet. Harriet is twelve years old and she is, of course, a hamster princess. Her mom and dad are king and queen, but that is the only reason why she is a princess. She is not really interested in the stuff normal princesses are. She is more of a warrior than a princess. Harriet was sent on the quest by a fairy and was given a poncho of invisibility to help her. When she got to the castle of the Mouse King, he gave her 3 days to find out what was going on. Harriet used the poncho of invisibility to follow the princesses around at night. She finds out that a mole witch cursed the princesses to dance with her sons so they would get married to each other. She said that she did not curse them; she “put a spell” on them. The Mouse King finds out and meets the witch, but they turn out to have a lot in common. Meanwhile, Harriet helps all the princesses escape the castle after years of being stuck. Everyone is happy, except the king and the witch, and the princesses go on to live safe, happy lives. When everything is done, Harriet goes back to her own kingdom and is rewarded by the fairy.
I think that this is a great book for girls who don’t want that boring old princess story and want want something exciting and unique. I personally loved this book because it was adventurous and fun to read. I recommend this for ages 8-11.
