The Diary of Edward the Hamster 1990–1990 - Miriam Elia, Ezra Elia

Edwards diary had the power to touch me way more than I anticipated after I picked it up in the bookstore, thinking a hamster's diary would be funny.


While it is a super quick read, and there are loads of pictures it is so much more than Edward trying to resist the temptations of the running wheel (and utterly failing every single time). In a way it even had philosophical proportions looking at Edward's life as a caged pet and the expectations of the people around him.
