MY HAMSTER IS A GENIUS was shortlisted for the Sheffield Children's Book Award 2013

Nine-year-old Ben Jinks wants a pet, but a talking hamster wasn't on his wish list.

When his mum says he has to prove he's responsible in order to get his TV back, he resolves to make the best of it. What he wasn't expecting was a grumpy talking hamster who can do his maths homework! Ben's marks shoot up, but his teacher – the nasty Beardy McCreedy – is suspicious, and bets Ben's dad that Ben can't pass a maths test without cheating. Ben is sure he is doomed, but with Stinky's help – and some disgusting maths props – maybe he can prove his nasty teacher wrong . . .

Illustrated throughout with black and white artwork by The Boy Fitz Hammond.

About Dave Lowe

Dave Lowe grew up in Dudley in the West Midlands, and now lives in Brisbane, Australia, with his wife and two daughters. He spends his days writing books, drinking lots of tea, and treading on Lego that his daughters have left lying around. Dave's STINKY AND JINKS books follow the adventures of a nine-year-old boy called Ben, and Stinky, Ben's genius pet hamster. (When Dave was younger, he had a pet hamster too. Unlike Stinky, however, Dave's hamster didn't often help him with his homework.) Find Dave online at @daveloweauthor or
