Book Overview

The fourth book in the beloved and award-winning school hamster series

A classroom hamster has to be ready for anything, but suddenly there are LOTS-LOTS-LOTS of big surprises in Humphrey's world. Some are exciting, like a new hamster ball. But some are scary, like a run-in with a cat and a new janitor who might be from another planet. But even with all that's going on, Humphrey finds time to help his classmates with their problems...

Humphrey....the 5 book series

The Humphrey books are GREAT!!!! I bought them for my grandchildren (7 & 5) and they loved them. They couldn't wait to find out what happened next and looked forward to the next book as they were getting to the end of one. They are anxiously waiting for "Summer According to Humphrey" due out in February. I think they became attached to Humphrey and learned the life lessons being taught.

Surprises According to Humphery is FANTASTIC!!

I bought this book and thought it was great! People think it looks babyish but it's really for about everyone who can read. I read this book to my little cousin (5 years old) and she loves it just as much as I do. I also gave it to my mother to read and she said its awesome! All good readers deserve to read a great book like this one. My liberarian at my school reads it during story time. So what are you waiting for? Buy Suprises According to Humphery and all the other humphery books!

Love the Humphrey books

I love this set of stories about Humphrey. She writes them so well you can picture Humphrey doing these things in your mind.

A must read for kids!

I am a third grade teacher and once my school librarian handed me the first of the series,I was hooked. I then read it aloud to my class and we went Humphrey crazy (girls and boys)! We checked out Betty's website and entered a contest-we couldn't get enough! My students were ordering their own copies at home and reading them and borrowing them. I have read all of the books thus far in the series and each one is so creatively written it's just amazing. Beware that kids do want a class pet after reading it!!!

Excellent series

These books are just wonderful. A must have for any child that has, or wishes for a hamster... or any animal lover for that matter. A teacher let my son borrow the first in this series and that was it. We have them all. They are so cleverly written and subtly expand on a variety of situations and emotions that kids experience each day. Thanks Betty G. Birney! We love your writing style.
