Seven little junkyard critters venture out of their small, dark hole on a charmingly madcap quest for a new home, with laugh-out-loud results. When a band of brothers outgrows the dim confines of their birthplace, there is no other choice but to set out into the world on a grand adventure. Timid and terrified at first, they soon find ingenious ways to simulate the safety of their familiar hole. They bravely cross a muddy sea, climb a discarded mountain, survive an appliance-like labyrinth, and finally reach the edge of the world. What will they see there, and will they ever find a place they can call their own? Loaded with visual humor and breathless commentary by the intrepid crew, this comic book-style tale of solidarity and daring will have readers giggling, cheering, and ready to see the world in a new way.

Review:

In scenes bursting with physical comedy, Schwarz's furry animals squabble, fret, and cheer each other on...Children will clamor for repeats.
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

The hapless hamsters will entice pre-readers into following their adventures with or without words, but it's really young readers who will snicker at this story of the brave and clueless making their way into the open air.
--Bulletin for the Center of Children's Books (starred review)

Book Description:
