What makes a good book about hamsters? Lots of PICTURES. And this book has plenty! Cute little dwarfies smiling, dancing doing back flips, playing basketball and being cuuuute! Photographs, not just drawings. I think the best part of it is that only sick or injured hamsters are drawn. That way you never get to see an actual hamster in bad condition. Photos of animals that have been injured can be disturbing, especially for dwarf hamster-obsessed people like me. There are like 4 or 5 drawings only, and LOTS of photos. Tons! I love this book!
Even though it's pretty thin, this manual is close to complete. It focuses on the eveyday pet owner, not just on breeders. There are not too many home remedies, it mostly recommends taking your pet to the vet. The section on recuperating a lost hamster is smart. Valuable information. It doesn't go too technical but it tells it just like it is. No kiddie speak. Also, most of the hamsters pictured are gray, just like my own Campbell's dwarf. That has made the book so much more enjoyable. There's a section on how to distinguish between 4 types of dwarf hamsters.
Get this book! You will want to eat it!

Dwarf Hamsters -A Complete Pet Owner's Manual- by Dr. Sharon Vanderlip, provides all of the essential information required to select, purchase, understand and care for this interesting group of pocket pets. The organization is clean and easy to use as a reference. Well-structured, readable tables present information on their taxonomy, biology, health care, reproduction and genetics. It is filled with good photos and illustrations. Of particular value to hamster owners, and veterinarians alike, is the advice given on how to gather the proper information and observations that will be necessary if a pet owner needs to seek veterinary care for their dwarf hamster. This compact, but information packed, book will be useful not only to pet owners, but for anyone involved with the housing and care of these species. It is an extraordinary value and written to be appreciated by first time hamster caregivers, pet fanciers, and by veterinarians.

I wanted to hug this book, the pictures of the Dwaf Hamsters are so cute and cuddly. I really enjoyed reading about how to tame you Hammie, breeding, and personality. Its so cool that Dwarfs have their own book all about them, this is the only book you'll need, u have to get it!

This book is well written and ideal for new and experienced pet keepers alike. I have kept hamsters for 14 years and I found lots of helpful hints in this book, the section 'understanding your hamster' makes for an enlightened read. I can't recommend this book highly enough.

Hamsters are without a shout of a doubt my favorite animal of all time, and this book gives you so much information on this specific breed of hamster. With high-res pictures and easy to comprehend material, this book is very delightful. Get it if you love hamsters!

I've read several dwarf hamster books but this is the one I keep coming back to for a reference, and for fun. The author is knowledgable and offers lots of good info on these little creatures.
