Description - Hamsters Don't Fight Fires! by Andrew Root

Meet Hugo, a tiny hamster with huge personality, who dreams of becoming a firefighter!

Andrew Root's debut is a sweet, funny tale for the youngest readers, who know that being little can be the biggest advantage of all. With fun-filled illustrations from Jessica Olien, author/artist of The Blobfish Book, Shark Detective!, and Adrift, Hugo proves once and for all that great things come in small packages.

For Hugo isn't just a hamster. He's also a great cook, a fast runner, a slow eater, and a fantastic dancer. However, what Hugo wants most of all is to be a firefighter. And even though Hugo worries that he's too small to fight fires, he learns that just because something is difficult, it doesn't mean he won't try his hardest to achieve his dream.

Perfect for fans of Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin and Daniel Salmieri and Dream Big Little Pig by Kristi Yamaguchi and Tim Bowers.
