Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
Humphrey the Hamster makes a delightful and believable character in this book from the "Humphrey" series. As a classroom pet who can read, escape from his cage at will, and travel to stay with students each weekend, he knows and learns a lot. His ability to read and write helps him tackle subjects in the library and to be included in class projects. In this tale, with a pirate theme, he yearns to set sail with the kids in the class who are making boats and planning to take a class outing to a nearby pond to sail the creations. Child characters encounter conflicts with which readers can identify, and adult characters come across as likeable and real, as some of them need to learn a few things about children. The pirate theme of the story works well to move the tale along. A thrilling climax, in which Humphrey actually gets to sail in one of the boats at the pond, keeps readers turning pages. Humphrey's sharing his feelings with the classroom frog lets children see the positive side of having a good friend. Other Humphrey books have come away with several prizes. Adding this book to classroom shelves or using it as a read-aloud is sure to enthrall youngsters. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury

I love this book, so here is a summary: Humphrey has always wanted to go outside the classroom, and he LOVES exploring. When he finds out there will be a field trip to a lake, he basiclly freaked out about it. Everybody is building their boat, and there are prizes. The prize is for best sailing, and most beautiful. Miranda and someone are building a really pretty boat, while someone and someone are building a really stiff boat, when one guy is so confident he won't let the other guy do anything. When Humphrey goes to sleep in a boat for naptime, he accidentally falls asleep under a cloth, and he wakes up hearing "Boing boing boing!" He realizes he is in the boat and is already off on the bus with the other kids, and he is out on the field trip!!!!! Ii do not want to ruin it for you, but I am saying you NEED to read this bok! It is realy good.

I was looking for books for my grandson, at Christmas. He has a hampster and is encouraged to read chapter books at school. I bought the four Humphrey books that were available in paperback. I asked him how he liked the books. His comment was he did like them and what hapened to "Adventure According to Humphrey." I laughed and told him it would be available by his birthday. He opened his presents very fast but he took time to look at his book. His parents are very pleased they think the books have given him a love for reading that did not exist before!

Humphrey is very funny,cute,sweet,and has a great personanlity.In "Adventure According to Humphrey" Humphrey pretends he's a pirate.ARRG!It's very exciting especially the part when Humphrey gets stuck on a kid's boat project and nearly drowns.I recommend this book and series to hamster lovers everywhere.I can't wait til "Holidays According to Humphrey" avalibile in England and soon the USA.
