Adventure According To Humphrey by Betty G. Birney



The students in Room 26 are learning about boats and building their own for a race on Potter’s Pond. Humphrey the hamster loves dreaming about being a pirate and watching his friends build ships. But when he mistakenly ends up at sea on the day of the boat race, he finds himself in the middle of more adventure than he bargained for! Humphrey is back in this charming story of a hamster on the high seas of hilarity.

I read this with my daughter over the last few weeks, about a chapter a night. She loves Humphrey. These are good books for developing readers. They are easy to read chapter books that keep the action, or mystery, or whatever is being emphasized, going and keep the kids interested. They make for a good soft introduction to classic tales, such as Treasure Island.

My daughter enjoyed it immensely and I find the adventures of a talking hamster fun to follow.

The softcover was formatted well with no obvious spelling/grammatical mistakes.
