‘A fun and engaging book with plenty of humor’ Kirkus Reviews samples Hamster Sitter Wanted!

Kirkus Reviews has continued its run of fantastic reviews for the US editions of Maverick picture books with a recent review for Hamster Sitter Wanted by Tracy Gunaratnam with illustrations by Hannah Marks:

‘Children will get a laugh out of the puns and visual jokes throughout the book. Gunaratnam infuses the text with simple but amusing wordplay, such as the “wound up” sheep babysitter, who is both frazzled and literally wrapped in yarn. Marks peppers her digitally collaged illustrations with details for children to notice, such as a pigeon looking on in concern as a fox reads the ad seeking a hamster sitter and a tailpiece in which two of the little hamsters construct pointy-hat “derrière defenders.” 

A fun and engaging book with plenty of humor.’
