My Zombie Hamster, by Havelock McCreely

My Zombie HamsterSummary:  Matt and his buddies are looking forward to receiving the latest sword-and-fantasy video game. But Matt’s parents have other thoughts—they give him a fluffy little mammal, a hamster called Snuffles, for the holiday.  But the hamster isn’t all that cute—at least not after part of its cheek and belly fall right off—without bothering it a bit! And why is it staring at Matt with black beady eyes and a lean and hungry look?  Say hello to Anti-Snuffles, the zombie hamster! Or better yet, run!
