A little sad in places but a great read. I liked seeing things from the point of view of the snake. Makes me wonder what my pets think about.

Told from the point of view of a gopher snake who is captured by a boy who collects various wild critters he finds and keeps them imprisoned in cages in his room. The boy is a pretty unlikeable character, who loves to play video games all day. When he loses a game at one point, he destroys his video game console, and is given a new one a short while later by his indulgent parents. The boy quickly loses interest in his newest acquisition when the snake refuses to eat. The snake is able to communicate with the other animals kept in the room though, and learns that others have died from neglect. When the lizard, Rex, dies from lack of food, the snake realizes that she will suffer the same fate unless she is able to escape.

When our protagonist, the gopher snake, is captured by a human boy and put in a cage, all she can think of is escape. But after studying the habits of boys for awhile and getting to know her mouse companion (whom she affectionately names Breakfast), will Crusher change her mind? Funny and weird, this book is definitely something different. Crusher's observations on human habits are witty and Gunnar's treatment of his pets will definitely make kids think twice about catching wild animals.

Book was okay. Did address the problem of children playing video games for too long and the problem of capturing and keeping wild animals as pets (in this case snakes, tarantulas, lizards and turtles). Told from the point of view of the snake.
