Publisher's Summary

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, like Lower-Your-Voice-A.J. and Speak-Up-Sayeh. Soon Humphrey learns to read, write, and even shoot rubber bands (only in self-defense, of course). Humphrey has friends, adventures, and a cage with a lock that doesn't lock.

    "My kids love Humphrey!"

    Very well read. I got all the Humphrey books for my daughter when she got a hamster for her birthday. She and my son listened to all of the books in the series over and over and over. Even after the hamster died, they still loved the Humphrey books.

    "A lot of fun!"

    This was a great story for my 9 yr old hamster loving son. The narrator did an excellent job of bringing the story to life. We will definitely be getting more by this author and narrator.

    "Squeak Up!"

    Humphrey is a fun loving hamster who seems to be capable of helping all the people he comes into contact with. The stories kept us laughing and guessing through this whole book. The voice Hal Hollings uses is quite squeaky for Humphrey and, while some may find it unnerving, we quite enjoyed it. My children can't wait to listen to the next one in this series!

    "Exciting"

    It's exciting and funny. It's scary when a cat was batting Humphrey around in a hamster ball! So far I've read the whole series except for three books and all of them were fun.

    "Delightful!"

    This is a wonderful narration of the beginning of the Humphrey series for early grade school children (and even old 63 year ladies) who love animals and to have fun,fun,fun with Humphrey the Hamster. The narrator sounds just likely a lively good natured hamster. I can't wait to get my next retirement check so I can buy more Humphrey the Hamster audio books. Humphrey made me happy, happy, happy.

    "Humphrey is one of our favorites!!!!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The World According to Humphrey to be better than the print version?

    I love to listen to audio books so thought I would try if with my children during our school commute everyday.


    Any additional comments?

    My children and I listened to World According to Humphrey because our school chose it for their One Book One District read. We fell in love with Humphrey. My children have read several more of the Humphrey series since.
