Hamsters & gerbils
Part of the MY PET series
Endorsed by the PDSA, People's Dispensary for Sick Animals, this book is designed to teach children how to choose and look after hamsters and gerbils.
It describes the different breeds, how to feed and handle them and their lifecycles, from birth to adulthood.
There is also a special section for parents explaining how they can help their child to understand the responsibility that they have and how to cope with the death of their pet.
