Hamsters make delightful and engaging pets for both kids and adults--a point that pet expert Peter Fritzsche emphasizes as he discusses every aspect of hamster ownership and care. In addition to advice on feeding, housing, and health maintenance, this book shows hamsters at play, suggests cage accessories and toys to keep them active and alert, and discusses the breeding and care of newborn hamsters.
My Pet books, titles in a new pet care series from Barron's, are formatted in a somewhat larger trim size than Barron's popular Pet Owner's Manuals and Pet Handbooks. Accordingly, My Pet books contain even more color photos and more attractive checklists and sidebar features. Their text is authoritative and clearly written, accessible to older children as well as adults. Attractive color photos of pets and their owners appear on nearly every page, as well as on each book's handsome front-and-back cover flaps.
