Humphrey the hamster loves the adventures he has as the classroom pet in Room 26 Longfellow School. And he loves puzzles and riddles, too. Here are all kinds of fun activities from riddles through spelling quizzes to join the dots which celebrate Humphrey and his adventures. A great holiday companion as well as being a terrific companion to all the Humphrey books that are loved so much.


Humphrey's Book of Fun-fun-fun by Betty G. Birney

Amazing activities and rollicking riddles from everybody's favourite hamster - Humphrey! Dear friends, I LOVE-LOVE-LOVE being the classroom hamster in Room 26, Longfellow School. I've learned a lot about reading, writing, maths and making friends...and I've had amazing adventures in and out of my cage, too. But I also love solving puzzles and riddles in the tiny notebook I keep hidden in my cage. They're not always easy but if I wiggle my whiskers and scratch my furry head for a while, I usually can solve them. I'm sharing some of my favourites in this fun-filled book so you can find out if you're as smart as a hamster! (I'll bet you are.) Your puzzle-loving pal, Humphrey.

The adorable Humphrey has his own website full of games and pictures - click here to visit.

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!
