Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-When Lola, a cheerful little hamster, tells her friends that her parents sometimes call her "babycake," "sweetie pie," or "fairy princess," they all laugh and tease her. She feels sad until she learns that many adults also had endearing nicknames when they were small. When her best friend apologizes and reveals that her parents have now adopted the very same pet names for her, Lola feels resentful at first. After a while, however, she decides that "Silly little nicknames [are] for everyone, after all!" Whimsical drawings capture Lola's feelings and mood swings, and depict a world of cuddly humanlike hamsters. A slight, sweet story.

From Booklist

Small both in format and length of text, this little book is adorable. Lola the hamster has had a fine first day of school--until Lulu and others ask if she has a nickname. When Lola reports it's babycake, fairy princess, or sweetie pie, the snickers begin, and Lola's day is ruined. But the next day, Lulu admits the reason she started the laughs was because she was jealous. There's another tussle over nicknames, when Lulu decides to appropriate Lola's monikers, but in the end, friendship ensues. Originally published in France, this is delightful in its almost idiomatic expression and delicate in its line work. The colored-pencil drawings, with puffs of soft beige tones in the background, feature little hamsters that are not completely humanized but have enough human characteristics to be full of fun and good cheer.

Claude Dubois' inviting drawings lend to an appreciation of this very simple story of parental endearments, which embarrass a daughter when friends tease. She loves her parents and wonder if everyone has an affectionate nickname in this gentle picturebook story of a mouse and friends.

Format: Paperback
Does your little one have a nickname? Well, we happen to call our young daughter "sweetie pie", amongst other lovable nicknames and when I saw this title at our local library, I could not wait to share it with my 5-year-old. The story centers around an adorable little hamster named Lola who shares with her friends at school that her parents have nicknames for her, i.e. "sweetie pie", "babycake", and "fairy princess". Poor Lola feels sad and upset when her friends begin making fun of her by teasing her mercilessly. She then goes around asking grown-ups if they had nicknames as children and their answers make her feel a whole lot better.

Any child who has a nickname, and I'm guessing that's a large number will adore this cute story populated with a bunch of adorable hamsters. The illustrations are sweet and lovable, and the hamsters appear to have 'real' personalities. The story itself is one that both children and grown-ups will relate to and it makes for a perfect bedtime read. Also recommended: I Love You So Much and I Love to Cuddle.
