Gerry has a week off from school for Spring Break, and she's given a very special job – watching over the class pet, Houdini the hamster! Gerry wants to make sure Houdini feels right at home, so she learns his favorite snacks, reads him stories, and even paints him a picture of her classroom. But then, the hamster darts right out of his cage and goes missing! It's time for Gerry to put on her thinking crown to figure out how to get him back.
 
With full-color illustrations throughout, this Level 1 early reader is perfect for Very Fairy Princess fans who are ready to take the next step beyond picture books.
