This is a rather novel and mad story as two twin hamsters witness a burglary then set out to solve it along with some fellow creatures - no slugs. Whilst out there's a fire and their home, a pub, is burnt down. Luckily their child owner is saved but his mother has gone missing! The hamsters then try to solve this mystery too. Of course, if they had enlisted the help of slugs then it would've been solved within a jiffy. This is a marvellous story full of twists and suspense - whoever thought that hamsters could be this smart? Could they give my slugs a run for their money? No. Along with bees, a ladybird and the wonderful setting of Chichester, it's a fun story and well worth getting.
