Frank and the Black Hamster of Narkiz

Livi Michael

As you probably know, most hamsters are gentle, timid, domesticated creatures. Easily tamed and house-proud, they need little more than a full bowl of food and an exercise wheel to adapt to their small homes. Some hamsters, however, are different...’. So begins the epic adventure of Frank, a hamster with a mission and a motto - ’Courage!’ This is the story about a time when Frank lived in a house at the end of a terrace, with a kindly but thoughtless owner. Frank dreams of the world outside, he knows about the original wild hamsters of Syria and their legendary leader, the Black Hamster of Narkiz, so sets out on an epic journey to the wild beyond.
