Ferret Fun

I love this book! When I first read it, I wasn't sure that the format/topic would be one that would interest kids. However, after reading it for a second time, I noticed the humor in the book that I think kids and adults would enjoy. Fudge and Einstein are two ferrets who are used to relaxing in their hammocks and eating raisins. When Marvel the cat comes to visit, their day is turned upside-down. Marvel thinks they look a lot like rats (and she likes to eat rats).
Einstein and Fudge have to stand up to Marvel and soon they are all getting along together. Karen Rostoker-Gruber has written Ferret Fun with an embedded message that is not overt but enhances the story.
