Hamster Princess #1: Harriet the Invincible
Ages 8 and up. Harriet is not great at trailing around the palace looking ethereal. She finds royal life rather dull. Her parents tell her of a curse placed on her at birth, dooming her to prick her finger on a hamster wheel when she's twelve and fall into a deep sleep. For Harriet, this is great news - it means she's invincible until she's twelve!

When a charismatic leader arises, she seeks a savior to unite the disparate social orders.
