The Big Adventures of Mr. Small
By JoAnn Adinolfi
Mr. Small is a hamster with a big hunger for adventure. When he leaves his cozy cage and meets Big Dusty, he faces the biggest adventure of all – fighting the Dust Sucker 3000! Will Mr. Small defeat the evil vacuum cleaner or will he lose his friend to its voracious appetite? An easy-to-read, early graphic novel format showcases the comic adventures of a little hamster and his new friend.
“Can eyeballs be characters if they don't have a face to sit in? If you add stick arms and legs, they can. When they link up with a "teeny tiny hamster" who's in search of a big adventure, the result is a goofy plot ...The panels abut one another without traditional borders, and they teem with activity...The sheer looniness of the premise combines with potty humor.”
