When she's not designing books for First Second, Colleen Venable's secret lives include being an author. This first in a delicious new series, HAMSTER and CHEESE introduces a new Private Eye to reckon with: a guinea pig named Sasspants and the case of the stolen sandwich. 

Stephanie Yue's world-in-a-loony-pet-shop is visually irresistible, and Colleen's story shines with its hilarious dialog and timing. Anyone six and up deserves to discover this gem. 

Move over Miss Marple, never mind the #1 Ladies' Detective Agency, here's the real mistress of the whodunnit. She's sharp. And she's furry. This one's a keeper. 

(Published by Lerner, for their Graphic Universe, where editor Carol Burrell is a breath of fresh air and fresh vision.)

    Dwarf hamsters are tiny, cute animals that make fantastic pets for just about anyone. They fit in the palm of your hand, they are inexpensive and if you train them when they are young, they will be your buddy for life!

    What is the stand up comedy scene like for a new comer?
    how do clubs and other comics treat new comics just doing stand up for the thrill, love, and fun of it?

    That was one of the funniest things I think I’ve ever read.
    I’d be honored if you would consider linking your blog to mine
    Keep up the good work– and to the Cons who are complaining, you really need to work a little harder at reading comprehension.

    Agreed. Some folks use push/pull, and some of this comes from the “permission markeitng” concept from Seth Godin from about a decade ago. I also agree with you that social media and the ability to have a conversation (like this one) change the game. So maybe we need a new term?
    You have some good points, and the best one might be that I prefer to debate less and do more marketing! If you are ever in Boston, look me up and I’ll give you a tour of the HubSpot offices and buy you a coffee.

    This book looks like a real winner. It’s one of the best cartoon drawings of a hamster that I’ve seen. Most drawings make them look like small teddy-bears. But Colleen has definitely nailed the hamster caricature.!
