There was yellow and blue and maybe some purple. ” I didn’t have time to think about why my true spirit was yellow, blue and purple because Simon waved his picture right in my face. ” Simon’s painting showed an orange blob with all kinds of swirly lines but no hamster that I could see. Mrs. Morgenstern leaned in to examine the picture closely. “That’s very interesting, Simon. ” “It’s all squiggly because he was spinning on his wheel. ” Simon jumped out of his chair and began twirling in a circle.

Oh, Mom,” Gail groaned. ” “Anyone can do that,” her mom answered. ” Simon asked. ” Mrs. Morgenstern smiled. “Of course! ” Eek! If they all painted me, I’d end up looking like a rainbow and I’d probably be a soggy mess. Og wouldn’t even recognize me when I got back. “Okay,” said Gail, but she didn’t sound all that happy about it. Soon, my cage was on the Morgensterns’ kitchen table. Simon, Gail and their mom all sat around with paper and paints and stared at me. Mr. Morgenstern, who seemed like a kind and sensible man, said he had errands to do and hurried out of the house before the painting even began.

The SS Golden Hamster was definitely a joyful reflection of who I was. But would a boat like that actually float? My friends were already busy drawing and discussing their boats. If only I had a partner to help me build my boat! I stuck my head outside the hut. ” I asked. ” he answered, followed by loud splashing. I guess the idea of a boat is pretty silly to a creature that can swim like Og.
