There’s a hot rod race today at noon! But before the hamster can enter the big race, he must first find his perfect hot rod. Where will he ever find a car small enough for a hamster? Of course—the One Dog’s Junk Yard! Dog tries to help Hamster, but there are so many cars for the hamster to choose from. Old car? New car? Or a shiny, glittering blue car? How will Hamster ever decide which is best for burning rubber? In Hot Rod Hamster, Newbery Honor winner Cynthia Lord pens a delightful tale about a hamster who feels the need for speed. Children will be thrilled to join in as narrator L.J. Ganser’s vibrant voice guides them through Hamster’s difficult decision and asks, “Which would you choose?” Download and start listening now!
