Synopsis

Humphrey's Book of Christmas Fun by Betty G. Birney

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. To keep you busy on your Christmas holidays, 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.

With additional material compiled by Amanda Li, the author and editor of joke books for Jeremy Strong, Gwyneth Rees and David Roberts, this fabulous book of puzzles is the perfect stocking-filler to keep Humphrey fans busy in the holidays.

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!
