Cinnamon's Day Out
A Gerbil AdventureBook - 1998
From the author-artist of My Love for You comes a delightful new book illustrated in her trademark bright collages and starring one of the most popular pets for children today. When a busy gerbil called Cinnamon chews its way up to the sky one morning, it begins an exciting adventure in the great world outside its cage. Setting off to explore, Cinnamon descends a mountain...finds a city...meets a fierce wolf...even takes a ride on a train! In colorful mixed-media collages, award-winning artist Susan L. Roth has captured a gerbil's-eye view of its owner's household, where a rug becomes a meadow and a cat is a hungry tiger. Young children will delight in correctly identifying the scenes that make up Cinnamon's giant-sized adventure -- and they're sure to agree that at day's end, there's no place like home.
