Hamster Princess: Whiskerella Read Online Free - A funny, feminist twist on the Cinderella fairy tale for fans of fractured fairy tales
Princess Harriet Hamsterbone is not the kind of princess who enjoys fancy dresses or extravagant parties. Cliff-diving, fractions, and whacking people with swords are more her thing. So when she's forced to attend a boring ball in honor of a visiting ambassador, Harriet is less than thrilled--until a bewitchingly beautiful stranger arrives. Who is she? And where did she come from? The mystery leads to a not-so-wicked stepsister, an incontinent lizard, and a fairy's spell that's really more of a curse. Luckily, Harriet knows a thing or two about curses...
Smart, funny, and filled with swashbuckling adventure, book five in the critically acclaimed Hamster Princess series is a hilariously re-told fairy tale for the modern age.

Book 5. Minor spoilers for earlier books ahead.
In which Harriet collides, full strength, with Cinderella. Her mother holds a costume ball, nominally in honor of the bat ambassador, actually to get Harriet to meet the princes without their past dislike coming into play. It doesn't work, but an ast...

I'm so in love with the Hamster Princess books! Whiskerella marks book #5 in the series, and it doesn't disappoint!
Harriet's castle is hosting a costume ball for the bat ambassador (much to Harriet's chagrin) and a stunning hamster named Ella makes an appearance. Who is this mystery rodent? She...

This was a different sort of Harriet-natural-disaster with a satisfying and sweet ending. So much love for these books.

What can I say? I simply love Harriet the Hamster Princess. This book has it all-a fairy godmother, balls, and a hamster princess who wants to be anywhere else. Not to mention, an ambassador who just so happens to be a bat.
In this Harriet has to solve the mystery of Whiskerella, a beautiful and m...

I have read every Hamster Princess book and still enjoy the unconventional princess. Harriet is fun, brave, and would rather cliff dive than go to a ball. These books are quick reads with fun illustrations throughout that also break up the text for even the most reluctant readers. I recommend the...

Full of the same clever writing and witty commentary, this is a must read for fans of the series. Highly recommended for gr...

I still love Harriet Hamsterbone. I love how she suffers through her role as Princess, but understands that isn't a something for everyone. Happily ever afters cannot be mandated or manufactured for you. You have to make that happen on your own. No one should wish for a Fairy Godmother to save th...

Nonconformist, butt-kicking princess genre meets cute animal graphic hybrids. Princess Harriet is a charming, assertive, cliff-diving hamster princess who sets out to free Whiskerella from the unwanted spell of her fairy godmouse in an upending of the traditional story. Good humor in places. Grea...

Like previous stories in the series, this retelling examines the price of a fairy gift. Ella, who didn't need rescuing despite having a step mother and step sister, is now forced to attend every single ball and dance in uncomfortable shoes until a prince sweeps her off her feet. The problem is: t...
