Hamster Princess: Of Mice and Magic by Ursula Vernon

Hamster Princess 2: Of mice and MagicReluctant princess Harriet Hamsterbone is back in the second Hamster Princess book, Of Mice and Magic, where Harriet (slightly less invincible than previously, but no less adventurous) and Mumphry, her fearless battle-quail, run into a fairy in the woods who sends them on a quest to save twelve princesses who can't stop dancing. They dance through their shoes every night, and no prince has been able to figure out how or where they are going. Harriet agrees to go check it out (apparently, the future of the Hamster Kingdom depends on it, also she's bored) and runs into an old friend, a ridiculously color-coordinated castle, and twelve tired princesses named after months of the year (August is her favorite, she seems pretty sensible).

Even though she can't really go cliff diving anymore (darn), Harriet is still a fearless, hysterical protagonist who has fantastic adventures without any of that mushy love stuff. This book is perfect for anyone who fell in love with Harriet in her first adventure, Harriet the Invincible, or who loves adventuring princesses, talking rodents, and snappy one liners.
