What did you like about the book? This book for hamster owners begins with some basics such as sizing, safety, how to set up a nice habitat for your hamster and an overview of craft techniques and materials needed. The book breaks down the projects into the categories of running, climbing, digging, chewing and resting. Readers are given step-by-step instructions for making projects such as water bottle tunnels, a popsicle stick climbing wall, a papier-mache landscape, treat tubes using toilet paper rolls, and a hideaway cave. The projects can be made with inexpensive and everyday objects found around the home and the instructions are easy to follow. Line drawing instructions are complemented with color photographs featuring cute little hamsters. The book includes an index. This is a must have for young hamster owners.
