Freddy to the Rescue
by Dietlof Reiche
In Book Three of The Golden Hamster Saga
, Freddy the reading, writing, golden hamster goes up against bulldozers, security guards, and City Hall in an environment-friendly adventure. An automobile plant is to be built over a grain field that is home to a colony of field hamsters creatures bigger and even more cantankerous than Freddy himself, but still, theyre a protected species. A phony scientific report proves that no hamsters live in the field...but that doesnt change the fact that, unless somebody does something, dozens of Freddys cousins are going to die.
Freddy hears their call for help and comes running, along with all his faithful friends two hammy guinea pigs named Enrico and Caruso a cool, carsick cat named Sir William their own man, Mr. John, and his journalist girlfriend Linda and others as well. The secrecy surrounding Freddys ability to read and write must be sacrificed to the greater good. And as time runs out for the field hamsters, Freddy risks their biting disapproval to persuade them that their lives are in danger, their priest is a fraud, and their only hope is to do the unthinkable: move to a different field.
Its a big responsibility for a hamster, even one who can use a Mac.
Ive enjoyed all of The Golden Hamster Saga so far. I have yet to run into the fourth volume in the series, titled The Haunting of Freddy, but when I see it, youll know about it.
