The great pet escape (Pets On The Loose!, Book 1)

by Jamieson, Victoria
Paperback Henry Holt and Company, 2016


From the Publisher
The class pets at Daisy P. Flugelhorn Elementary School want OUT... and GW (short for George Washington), the deceptively cute hamster in the second-grade classroom, is just the guy to lead the way. But when he finally escapes and goes to find his former partners in crime, Barry and Biter, he finds that they actually LIKE being class pets. Impossible! Just as GW gets Barry and Biter to agree to leave with him, a mouse named Harriet and her many mouse minions get in their way. What follows is class-pet chaos guaranteed to make readers giggle... and maybe look at their class pets a little differently in the future.
