Overview

When Humphrey hears that school is ending, he can't believe his ears. What's a classroom hamster to do if there's no more school? It turns out that Mrs. Brisbane has planned something thrilling for Humphrey and Og the frog: they're going to Camp Happy Hollow with Ms. Mac and lots of the kids from Room 26! Camp is full of FUN-FUN-FUN new experiences, but it's also a little scary. There are fur-raising wild sounds and smells, and there's something called the Howler to watch out for. Humphrey is always curious about new adventures, but could camp be too wild even for him?

Summer According to Humphrey, by Betty G. Birney, is a sweet story about a classroom hamster that goes to summer camp while school is out. He is afraid of the wild and his new situation, but he faces both with courage when his best friend, Og the Frog, is lost. The story is about situations with and relationships between campers, and the role Humphrey plays in their lives. Humphrey cares for the children and intervenes in their situations when he can. The story is told from Humphrey's perspective. This story discusses facing fears and new situations with courage and the importance of friendship. The book has a gentle story line mixed with humorous incidents children will enjoy.

I purchased the 5 other Humphrey books for my grandson because he needed encouragement to read and he has a hampster. When he asked me at Christmas about the next paperback that was to be available in January, I knew that he should have Humphrey books as soon as available. My daughter said that she felt these books had given him a love for reading and he had taken them to school!
