Frank and the New Narkiz

(The fourth book in the Frank series)
A novel by

It's shortly after Christmas and, once more, all is less than peaceful on Bright St. A suspicious couple are knocking on doors, rounding up hamsters to win prizes in international shows. Lured as ever by vanity, Mabel voluntarily goes with Marcia Taylor and Vernon Maid, while Frank is alerted to danger by the black hamste. He manages to infiltrate their clinic and discovers that the steps they take to produce a prize-winning hamster are rather unusual. In Taylor-Maid laboratories hamsters are genetically modified, or scientifically 'improved'. In the horrifying surroundings, Frank not only faces his greatest fear but he is finally reunited with his mother, Leila. Meanwhile, the New Narkiz is under threat as planning permission is granted to build houses on The Wild. Daisy and the new cubs go missing, and it is up to George and Little Elsie to find them. This is a terrifically exciting and poignant story of how the New Narkiz is finally established, and of how one hamster (namely Frank) must pay the ultimate price.
