The Feast of the Moon
a novel of exceptional fierceness
Humans know nothing of danger, less of death and therefore do not live with honor. So thinks our hero-hamster until he meets the girl who will become the love of his life: the source of his greatest joy and deepest loss.
The Feast of the Moon is fiction for middle grade and junior high readers, their moms and dads and anyone who has ever loved a pet. With humor and by thrilling adventure (by hamster standards), it explores how brothers and sisters get along, as well as the nature of life, danger and friendship.
Whether persevering through the hazing by the girl's older brother, the assaults by the family cat, or attacks by predators in the wild, he adheres to his philosophy of "Honor and Danger"...until he discovers the surprising concept of "Cherish."
It is a tale told by a hamster. But as he tells the story - being snatched by humans as a youngster; learning to love his adolescent owner; escaping into the prairie; his reunion with his human friend - our hamster learns as much about himself as he does the sky-wide prairie.
