Humans know nothing of death, still less of danger and therefore do not live with honor.

So concludes the hamster in Brian Wapole’s youth/crossover novel, The Feast of the Moon, released January 2012, available in paperback through Amazon.com and as an e-book through Amazon-Kindle, Barnes & Noble and Smashwords.

The hamster – who would be insulted to learn he was given a name – is born on a prairie  preserve surrounded by subdivisions.  While still a pup he is snatched from his burrow by a human and given to a pre-teen girl.  Under her care he studies the baffling ways of these curious creatures, learning the surprising concept of friendship.
