Hamster Princess: Whiskerella

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

If there's one thing that life with Princess Harriet Hamsterbone isn't, that's boring, and this fifth series installment finds the plucky, cliff-diving royal rodent up to her usual high jinks. She's been strong-armed into attending a ball her parents are throwing for the visiting bat ambassador. Though Harriet would prefer to get to know the ambassador by dangling upside down from the ceiling with him, she reluctantly dons a ballgown and a mask and attends the party, where a mysterious, beautiful stranger with an odd choice of footwear shows up and steals the hearts of every prince in attendance. Harriet, who has never cared much for princes to begin with, follows the girl she's dubbed Whiskerella home and discovers she's been spelled by a fairy godmother and the spell may be more of a curse. Good thing Harriet's got some experience with those. The familiar cartoon panels and brassy banter are on display in this twisted-up Cinderella story, and Harriet, who charges through this adventure with her usual aplomb, shows no sign of slowing down.--Reagan, Maggie Copyright 2018 Booklist

Gr 3-6-Harriet the hamster princess faces her greatest tribulation yet: a fancy masquerade ball. She'd rather be slaying Ogrecats or fighting giants than wearing elegant gowns and dancing with dull, clumsy princes, but the party gets a boost with the arrival of the lovely Whiskerella, who exits right before midnight, leaving behind several disappointed suitors. Curious Harriet and her friends Wilson and Ratpunzel investigate only to discover a fairy godmother hell-bent on obtaining Whiskerella a happy-ever-after ending at all costs. Like previous titles in the series, this cheerfully irreverent "Cinderella" spoof hilariously deconstructs fairy-tale tropes ("And who falls in love with somebody because of their shoe size?!"). The humor turns delightfully silly at times, too, with plenty of bathroom jokes. The depiction of female characters is thoughtful: though take-charge Harriet, who eschews stereotypically feminine traits, is the star of the show, gentle Ratpunzel gets her due as well. Whimsical illustrations break up the action-packed narrative and add a comic book-like flair. VERDICT Both series fans and newcomers with a taste for snark will devour this one. Multiple copies are a must.-Mahnaz Dar, School Library Journal © Copyright 2018. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
