Title: Humphrey’s Adventures

Author: Betty G Birney

Characters 

Humphrey is a classroom hamster, who discovers the joys and challenges of making and keeping friends. Room 26 is a classroom full of children and a teacher named Mrs. Brisbane. Humphrey meets many new friends as he visits each of his friends every week. I really enjoy this series as they always make me smile.

Plot

Humphrey goes home every week with a different pupil and every week he has an amazing adventure where he learns something new and gets more wisdom. Some of his friends have cats, dogs etc which he is not so fond of. He finds many ways to protect himself from being hurt, such as flicking a rubber band off a dog’s nose.

My opinion

I absolutely love this book, it is really humorous and funny. My favourite part was when Humphrey got moved from his quiet life at Pet O’rama pet shop to the busy classroom room 26. He has to get used to making friends and eventually he is the master of sorting problems out; he always finds a way!

Recommend?

I would definitely recommend this book, any age would be touched and filled with laughter after reading the adventures of Humphrey.

  1. Billy was my favourite character because he helped a lot of people in the story so it made me feel happy.
  2. Might mama was a kind and cheerful person so I want to be just like her.
Plot

Well it’s about a boy called Billy who gets a moneybox from his dad who is in New York so when he goes to New York and finds double B batteries he finds out that the moneybox was really magic.
