THE MISADVENTURES OF SWEETIE PIE by Chris Van Allsburg

November 10, 2014

Chris Van Allsburg spoke about his book, The Misadventures of Sweetie Pie, at Politics & Prose on Monday November 10, 2014.

From two-time Caldecott winner Chris Van Allsburg, creator of "Jumanji" and "The Polar""Express, " comes a poignant story of one hamster's struggle with destiny. Being a pet store hamster isn't much fun for Sweetie Pie, but life in human homes proves downright perilous. As Sweetie Pie longingly gazes out of his cage at the squirrels frolicking in the trees, he wonders if he'll ever have the chance to feel the wind in his fur. Allsburg's expressive, soft-hued illustrations artfully capture a hamster's-eye view of the wide and wonderful world where maybe, just maybe, Sweetie Pie could someday run free.
