Sam just got a hamster for a pet. She's not really impressed. The hamster isn't very exciting - he mostly eats and sleeps and gets his shavings wet. BORING! After reading a book about mythological creatures, Sam gets some ideas for more exciting pets. But she soon realises that taking care of these magical beasts might not be as wonderful as she thought. Unicorns are shy, gryphons scare the dogs at the dog park and having a fire extinguisher handy at all times makes dragons seem like an awful lot of work. Maybe the hamster really is the best pet for her. A nice, safe pet... right?
