    Great series!

    We are sorry that this is the last book......hoping for more! My 7 year old grandson has loved each and every Humphrey book. Wonderful for children to read out loud or have read to them. Sweet books with enough fun and fantasy (in the character of Humphrey) while providing nice lessons (friendship, helpfulness, etc.) in an easy manner. As a grandma and an educator, I highly recommend Humphrey for children in grades 1-3.

    Cute

    Who does't like a cute (or like Humphrey says, cute cute cute) little hamster? Everyone loves Humphery. I reccomend it to anyone. Exept for big punks who would like to kill hamsters. I have no idea why I just wrote that. It is very tragic. You didn't read anything. Oooooooooooo.

    A kids favorite

    My two daughters can't get enough of Humphrey. My oldest started reading them in third grade and still looks forward to each book release. Now my second grader has read them all and hopes more will come. Humphrey is a terrific series!
