Booklist - 05/15/2017 Was there ever a more thrill-seeking rodent? Princess Harriet Hamsterbone returns for a fourth adventure, and, true to form, she opens this particular volume by jumping off a cliff (she’s not invincible anymore, but she did win back her cliff-diving skills). When a wily chipmunk tries to trade Harriet some magic beans for Mumfrey, her faithful battle quail, she’s got no trouble turning him down. Mumfrey, however, has trouble controlling himself, and eats one. The next morning, a giant beanstalk has sprouted (quails produce excellent fertilizer). Harriet scurries right up, discovering a giant’s lair filled with such treasures as a golden egg–laying goose and a punk-rock harpster (half harp, half hamster) who just wants to go on tour. But the giant is on his way home, and this might be one problem that even Harriet can’t wrangle. All the Hamster Princess hallmarks are here: clever repartee, graphic-style illustrations, and a delightfully twisted fairy tale. Harriet’s fans—surely she has a kingdom’s worth by now—will happily strap in for the ride. - Copyright 2017 Booklist.
