Review
Humphrey, the classroom hamster, is back, this time in a new series for chapter-book readers.Newly-independent readers are in for a treat with these stories of Humphreyâ€TMs adventures on the weekends. Each Friday afternoon, the suspense builds for the little hamster hero as he finds out where his temporary home will be. In this first outing, Humphrey goes home with Mandy (nicknamed Donâ€TMt-Complain-Mandy-Payne) and makes friends with her pet hamster, Winky. Winky has a hamster car, propelled by a plastic hamster wheel, and Humphrey is impressed. He loves his own little ball, but itâ€TMs not nearly as fabulous as Winkyâ€TMs car. When Mrs. Brisbane buys a car for Humphrey, the class decides to have a race day—Winky versus Humphrey, and Og, the class frog, versus George, the frog from another class. In the second story (publishing simultaneously), Humphreyâ€TMs Playful Puppy Problem, Humphrey goes home with Richie, who plans to use Humphrey in his science experiment. Humphrey has to fend off a too-loving puppy called Poppy and fix the experiment when the pupâ€TMs exuberance proves to be too much for it. Birney has created the kind of series that first- and second-grade readers will love. Itâ€TMs set in school, the vocabulary is accessible, the font and spacing are generous, and the frequent illustrations tie the story together.New readers will be “HAPPY-HAPPY-HAPPY” to see this promising new series. (Animal fantasy. 5-8)(Kirkus Reviews, July 1, 2014)
