Meet Hamstersaurus Rex, a class pet that will go down in legend.
After eating a package of Dinoblast Powerpacker protein powder, a product of the infamous Smiles Corp, a regular hamster transforms into a fiercely adorable, super-hungry, sharp-toothed, spiky-tailed mutant...and promptly goes missing. Sam Gibbs, sixth grader, social outcast, and amateur cartoonist, is determined to find and protect the weird little guy. Little does Sam know that his dino-hamster friend will be the key to bringing down Kiefer "Beefer" Vanderkoff, the worst bully in the history of Horace Hotwater Middle School.
Author Tom O'Donnell and illustrator Tim Miller perfectly capture the awkwardness and absurdity of middle school...and the hilarity of having a mutant dino-hamster for a class pet!
