I treasured every word of "Obi, Gerbil on the Loose!". I, too, have a gerbil by the name of Obi-Wan-Kenobi, and I was amazed at the characteristic resemblance between Delaney's Obi and my Obi. Book Obi had some humanlike traits, but did not go as far as being able to speak to humans. Also, from the second I started reading "Obi", I felt as if I was traveling with Obi through the Armstrong's house from a gerbil's point of view all through her remarkable adventure. The characters were amazingly 3-dimensional, being neither entirely good nor entirely bad. I certainly hope there will be another book written about Obi so I can embark upon another adventure with her. I simply could not put this book down! "Obi, Gerbil on the Loose!" is definitely a must-read for kids (and adults) of all ages!
I love the name of the gerbil Obi named after the Star Wars favorite.
So Obi ventures out into a world unknown to her, because while she has been throughout the house before, she was in her Gerbil Mobile and thus was safe and secure, she now must go out without the protection of a thick plastic ball. She must face three crazy cats, a turantula, a cornsnake, an old mouse that tries to brainwash her, and a retarded parrot that doesn't shut up, all while she is just a vulnerable animal at the bottom of the food chain.
Throughout the book you grow to love Obi and all that she stands for- love, loyalty, and courage. I would recommend this book to any parent or young child. I picked this book up out of boredom but continued to pick it up out of curiosity. I was captivated throughout the entire story and am sure you will be too.
Enjoy your reading!
