A fascinating autobiography of a hamster who fancies himself a great escapoogist and his quest to explore the great outdoors. One family's household has been in a state of disarray because of one small furry problem. Meet Houdini, an extraordinarily brilliant escapologist. No, not that Houdini. This one is a hamster. He can escape from anything--a cage or the clutches of a mean cat. While on his escapedes he causes all kinds of trouble from chewing through wires to causing a flood. But Houdini thinks it's all worth it, because he is desperate to explore the great outdoors.
