A message from Humphrey, hamster extraordinaire:

Dear friends, I LOVE-LOVE-LOVE sharing my adventures as a classroom hamster with all my friends. In fact I'm unsqueakably excited to share my new stories with you and I think Humphrey fans and new younger readers will be excited, too! Because I've written some shorter tales that are every bit as funny and exciting as my According to Humphrey books. They're called Humphrey's Tiny Tales and they've even got illustrations! (I'm quite pleased at how cute I look in the pictures.)

Synopsis

My Summer Fair Surprise! by Betty G. Birney

As the Longfellow School Summer Fair approached, all my classmates in Room 26 could talk about were the game stalls, the crafts, the yummy food and FUN-FUN-FUN to come! When my friends decided to include Og the frog and me, I was unsqueakably happy. Who could have guessed that my hamster ball would spin out of control, turning the Summer Fair into one of my most fur-raising adventures ever!

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!
