Hamster Monster

Illustrated by Henning Löhlein

Three little hamsters are tired of being called cute, sweet, and little—so they decide to be scary. They make scary faces and wear scary costumes, but the only thing they get in response is laughter. “We need to be bigger!” they cry. But when they build a great, big scary costume they get a response they don’t expect and they soon realize that being cute and sweet isn’t so bad and that you don’t need to be big to be scary.

Henning Löhlein, born in Germany, has illustrated more than 30 books. Since 2006 he has been selected every year for the exhibition of the German Cartoon Prize.
