Humphrey's Ho-Ho-Ho Book of Stories by Betty G. Birney

The Lovereading4Kids comment

The famous class-room hamster has a great many wonderful adventures in this bumper volume of three books in one. As ever, Humphrey takes a beady hamster-eyed look at everything around him and makes some profound comments about them. Humphrey enjoys life – a lot! And young readers will enjoy joining in his adventures. ~ Julia Eccleshare


Humphrey's Ho-Ho-Ho Book of Stories by Betty G. Birney

Dear Friends, I may be a small classroom hamster, but even I'm amazed at how many unsqueakably exciting adventures I've had. I've had a spooky mystery to solve on Halloween, nighttime escapades at school and even gone to Winter Wonderland. I've had so many HO-HO-HO hilarious adventures. I've put some more of them into this big book to share with you! Your friend, Humphrey.

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!
