Wonderful, delicately crafted full-color illustrations accompany the story of Harriet, a tiny Russian hamster who has escaped from her cage. At first, she seems to be in a land of wonder--a garden with a green grass carpet, giant plants, and birds that streak across the sky and land on tree branches to sing. But this is a most unfamiliar world to a very small hamster. It's filled with surprises, and not all of them are pleasant. Maybe the best place for Harriet to be is back in her owner's arms.
