Hamstersaurus Rex Vs. The Squirrel Kong by Tom O’Donnell; Illustrated by Tim Miller (5 out of 5) 

Sam Gibbs and the lovable Hamstersaurus Rex, are back! This time around they find a giant (GIANT) squirrel hiding in the woods behind the school. Squirrel Kong (great name) IS real, but he’s kind of an urban legend. Meaning…No one believes he exists. Even AFTER Squirrel Kong stomps his way into the school and trashes the science lab. Then fingers (and paws) point to our innocent hamster friend as the culprit!!! Sam must find a way to not only prove the existence of SK, but he must exonerate his innocent hamster friend. 

As much as I enjoyed the first, I may have enjoyed this one more. Simply because we get to see the bond between Sam and Hammie even more than the first book showed us. I love a story with humor, rabid animals, and the strong bonds of love between man and his unofficial pet. I laughed and also genuinely feared the ferocious beast known as Squirrel Kong. It’s a treat for those who enjoyed the first book. Target age group for this one is 8-12 years. It’s not out yet, so don’t rush to grab it. It’s out on June 27, 2017, and brought to us by the fine folks at Harper Collins Children’s. Put it on your lists, friends. It’ll be a fun book to keep your kids preoccupied in the wild jungle known as summer vacation.
