Overview

The World According to Humphrey (Humphrey Series #1) by Betty G. Birney, Hal Hollings

You can learn a lot about life by observing another species. That’s what Humphrey was told when he was first brought to Room 26. And boy, is it true! In addition to his classroom escapades, each weekend this amazing hamster gets to sleep over with a different student. Soon Humphrey learns to read, write, and even shoot rubber bands (only in self-defense). Humphrey’s life would be perfect, if only the teacher wasn’t out to get him!

“Humphrey is wry-humored and big-hearted. This read is simply good-good-good!” – Kirkus Reviews

I LOVED this book, not only is Humphrey one of the best characters in chapter books for younger students, but it is a wonderful book about the different personalities and families in a classroom. I highly recommend this book and the whole series for children and adults!

This was a true delight. Humphrey allowed us a peek into his world. He has some wonderful adventures and shares his insight about what he sees and learns. This book has an engaging storyline and enjoyable characters.

You usually don't hear a hamster's point of view ,or just don't want to, that will change after you hear Humphrey.
