Freddy is no ordinary hamster. He's a Mesocricetus auratus, a golden hamster of the highest order. As part of such a superior breed, he'd sooner go into Eternal Hibernation than mindlessly waste his life in a pet shop. And so, with the passion of youth and the conviction of the brilliant, he sets out on a daring quest for freedom, literacy, and a more dignified existence.
But enemies both human and animal, his diminutive size, and a few technological challenges threaten to thwart his dream at every turn. Lo and behold, in the spirit of the most gifted writers, Freddy turns these obstacles into fodder for his witty and heartwarming autobiography.
Like our intrepid hero himself, Dietlof Reiche's quick and clever story is as original as they come.
