The World According to Humphrey

          Betty G Birney                 

     8.5 /10    

7 - 9 years
                          Suitable for boys and girls


Humphrey is a classroom hamster and is sad when his lovely teacher leaves. The new teacher is strict and he is not sure if he likes her yet.

Each weekend, Humphry goes home with a different student where he finds himself very busy helping them out.


We think the author really understands hamsters and seems to have great insight into some human problems too. Humphrey has many fun adventures and we all really loved this story. 

Look out for more books in this series.
