My Hamster Is A Genius
by Dave Lowe, illustrated by Mark Chambers
Maths isn’t easy, is it? Certainly not for Ben, who has a nightmare maths teacher. Things start to look up, though, when Ben gets a pet hamster called Stinky, who can do sums. But can Ben actually learn something for himself? This humorous tale, the first Stinky and Jinks adventure, no less, had my daughter captivated, and she’s not even started maths yet. The dialogue sounds like it’s utterly real, as though author Dave Lowe channelled a real family’s banter into this book. We’re off to get the next Stinky and Jinks adventure.
