Hamster Princess: Ratpunzel by Ursula Vernon

The Hamster Princess is back.  Are you ready for another dangerous romp through the woods?  Climb on your quail and let's go!

Dial Books and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published October 18th.

This series is full of puns and silly antics.  Harriet is volunteered by Wilbur to recover the Hydra's egg.  She's not invincible anymore but she's more brave than scared.  Off they go to find the only person who they know might have it.  Wilbur's mother told her good friend how well the Hydra cooks and that she had an egg.  Perhaps that person stole it.

It turns out the thief is a witch.  She also has a tall tower.  She even has "Ratpunzel" in the tower.  The rat lowers her tail and the witch climbs it to enter the tower.  When the witch goes away the next day, they ask Ratpunzel to let them up.  She does.  They also discover the egg.  It's a close escape that day but they aren't going to give up.  They HAVE to get the egg back!

There are a lot of twist and turns in this story and it's fun to read.  Nothing goes exactly right but somehow it works out in the end.  One thing about it, if you hang out with the Hamster Princess, you won't be bored.
