Another delightful story about Humprey the Hamster and his freinds full of relatable life lessons that help young readers deal with growing up.


Friendship According To Humphrey by Betty G. Birney

When Og the Frog came to live in Room 26, Humphrey felt a little jealous. Still, he tried to be welcoming but discovered that it's hard to make friends with a frog. Then he found out that his fellow students were having problems with their friends, too. AJ and Garth had to deal with a bully named Martin, and Heidi and Gail had a terrible argument.


'Humphrey, a delightful, irresistible character, is big hearted, observant and creative, and his experiences, whether escaping a nosy dog or helping an immigrant family speak english, range from comedic to touching.' Booklist

Betty Birney on Betty Birney:

I wrote my first "book" at age seven. It was called "Teddy Bear in the Woods" and was followed by a sequel. Luckily, my parents encouraged my writing and my sister, Janet, was a great writer and role model.

I didn't just write, however. When I wasn't roller-skating (my favorite pastime), I was riding my bike, playing piano, swimming, reading, playing cards and board games or just hanging out with my friends. I loved school, but I loved vacations, too!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
