'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!'. Frank lives in a house at the end of a terrace, with a kindly but thoughtless owner. But Frank dreams of a world outside; he knows about the Hamster of Narkiz, so sets out on an epic voyage of discovery.

Livi Michael is the author of a number of adult books and her writing has been compared to early Pat Barker. She lives in Saddleworth, Yorkshire.From AudioFile:
We think of hamsters as timid creatures, but this story suggests that some are different. Meet Frank, whose motto is "Courage!" When Frank escapes his cage to explore the "spaces between" (dark places filled with dust, drainpipes, and other unknowns), he encounters other wandering hamsters from neighboring flats. He also meets the black hamster of Narkiz--an encounter that changes Frank forever. Robert Llewellyn deserves credit for throwing himself fully into all roles; whether performing fearless Frank, long-suffering George, or the lisping, horrible white hamster, Mabel, he is wonderful to listen to. His recitation of hamster lore--told in Mabel's singsongy voice--is particularly funny and creative. Listeners will enjoy this offbeat tale while learning some interesting facts about hamsters along the way. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
