In the third installment of the increasingly popular Golden Hamster Saga, Freddy is not only an author, but also a hero. It is a grand adventure -- as only Freddy Auratus can write it!

For Freddy Auratus, being civilized comes with responsibilities. So when he learns that a colony of endangered field hamsters is at risk, he takes action. But it's Freddy's own life -- and his most valuable secret -- that is put in jeopardy when, along with a wise tomcat and a pair of guinea pig poets (turned Opera divas), he takes on City Hall (and some bulldozers). Will Freddy's hamsteritarian mission be his last?

This is my third Freddy book, the golden hamster saga.
Some may think, right, a book about a hamster, silly.
Until you read and realize Freddy is more real than those you know in real life. I plan
to read all Freddy books and reread them yearly. I highly recommend this series for children and adults who think hamsters (and guinea pigs) are boring! 

Review: Freddy To The Rescue (The Golden Hamster Saga #3)

User Review  - Johnny Bennett - Goodreads

If you have read the first two books this one is basically more of the same. There are some deep emotions available in these little stories. I feel they are a good introduction to multi chapter books ... Read full review

About the author (2006)

Dietlof Reiche's middle-grade and young adult novels have garnered many awards in his native Germany, including the German Juvenile Literature Award and the Oldenburg's Children's Book Prize.

Born in Dresden, Germany, in 1942, Reiche spent his early childhood in the village of Nördlingen, the town where his first historical novel Der Bleisiegelfälscher (The Lead Seal Counterfeiter), is set. Before becoming a full-time writer of children's books, Reiche studied engineering. He later took an academic position at Darmstadt Technical University, followed by studies in sociology, and work as a graphic designer.

Many of Reiche's books are historical fiction, but he also enjoys mixing history with fantastic elements, and often brings his wonderful sense of humor and his concern for the environment to his books.

In Reiche's exciting new novel Ghost Ship, he blends contemporary life with history and the supernatural to create one captivating adventure. His Golden Hamster Saga series: I, Freddy; Freddy in Peril; Freddy to the Rescue; and the forthcoming, Freddy and the Ferocious Ferrets is hilariously narrated by Freddy the Golden hamster, and was inspired by memories of the numerous pet hamsters Reiche had as a child.

Dietlof Reiche lives with his wife in Hamburg, Germany.






Mr Cepeda received his BFA in illustration from California State University, Long Beach in 1992 and also studied Engineering at Cornell University. He is the illustrator of awarding-winning picture books such as What a Truly Cool World and Nappy Hair.
