Why do "children's" authors insist on slipping in quite adult, leering and, wink wink incidents and conversations about, you know what? There we were happily reading along about this very clever and articulate hamster when wham, with little warning we get a first person account of the mating habits of hamsters, and very anthropomorphic too. "Wedded and bedded", in a children's book?
Be cautioned about Lynne Reid Banks' other offerings as well. They just slip this stuff in. Caught one in The Prince of Egypt.

Reasonably enjoyable fare sullied by very adult hamster love tryst. Parents should be warned. The book starts off smart and funny and gradually gets darker and darker. I suggest a pre read.
