Synopsis

A tale of a gerbil's great adventure, perfect for fans of the Humphrey series!

Life is good for Obi the gerbil. That is, until her owner goes on vacation and leaves the pets home alone! A neighbor boy comes to feed the other animals but never notices poor Obi. So the resourceful gerbil takes on the courage of her namesake (the famous Jedi knight Obi-Wan Kenobi) and breaks out of her cage in search of food and water. Once she's on the loose, Obi faces dangerous cats, a maniacal tarantula, an insecure snake, a grumpy mouse, and a slobbering old dog. But she just might make some friends, too, in this hilarious and fun novel about a little rodent on a big adventure.
