Hamster Princess: Harriet the Invincible
Harriet was cursed when she was twelve days old - when she turns twelve years old, she will stick her finger and fall into a deep sleep. In the meantime . . . she's invincible! Since the curse is impossible to stop, it means she will live to be twelve, no matter what, so she might as well fight off ogre cats and jump off mountains.
This is the first book in this series.
This is a charming book, full of humor and unexpected action. Not only is Harriet reluctant to be a traditional princess, in the sense that she avoids any marital plans her parents might have for her - she is determined to be an adventure-seeker. She doesn't always know what she's doing, and that makes it even more fun.
The book is about 250 pages long, with frequent illustrations that blend traditional text with a graphic novel style, this book sits well for third and fourth grade, but advanced first or second grade readers could likely appreciate this book without encountering too scary or otherwise mature content.
