Song Lee brought a hamster named Yi to the classroom. Everyone loved him. The next day someone forgot to close the cage so Yi escaped from his cage in Room 2B. Everyone kept looking for him, but they couldn't find him anywhere. They drew the posters and put them up all over South School. A few days later, Mr. Jones, the school custodian, found Yi in the boiler room. Everyone cheered.

My favorite part of the story is when Song Lee brought Yi to school because I was curious to see what Yi really looked like. My favorite character is Song Lee because she treats hamsters like they're precious. This story relates to my life because I love pets. Also my friend brought a pet iguana to school one day and my friends and I were very excited. I can understand the story more easily because there are pictures. The illustrations are very simple and entertaining.

I recommend this stories to anyone who likes animals. It will make you want to buy a hamster. It is a funny story with a happy ending. You can also read about Song Lee in the other Horrible Harry stories.
