You first read how much my daughter was into her Puppy Place Books and Fairy Books (Rainbow Magic), well now she has moved on and progressed in her reading. Her latest obsession is now with the Humphrey books! Humphrey is a cute little hamster that has all sorts of adventures. My daughter seriously stays up at night with a flashlight and reads these books over and over!
The very first one she read that got her hooked was called Trouble According to Humphrey by, Betty G. Birney. The reading level is for ages 8 and up. This book has 192 pages and gets 5 STARS on Amazon!!! Here is a short synopsis of the book from Amazon:
“Humphrey loves to solve problems for his classmates in Room 26, but he never meant to create one! Golden-Miranda, one of his favorite students, gets blamed when Humphrey is caught outside of his cage while she’s in charge. Since no one knows about his lock-that-doesn’t-lock, he can’t exactly squeak up to defend her. Humphrey really has his paws full when Don’t-Complain- Mandy-Payne and her family stir up more big trouble. Humphrey manages to help Pay-Attention-Art and Sit-Still-Seth and even survives a trip to the vet, but can he clear Miranda’s name without giving up his freedom forever?” – Amazon.com
