Humphrey is in for his biggest adventure yet! When his friends begin studying the ocean and sailing, he not only discovers the new and exciting world of the library, but also stows away aboard a model boat and takes a very perilous sail on Potter’s Pond. Even with all this excitement, he finds time to smooth rough waters between Gail and her free-spirited mom, help competitive Kirk see that winning isn’t everything, and investigate whether his pal Aldo is really planning to become a pirate and sail the high seas. Kids in seven states voted The World According to Humphrey the winner of their children’s choice awards and consistently rave about Humphrey.

    " For all of you who love Ralph. S. Mouse and other adorable furry, people-loving creatures, Humphrey is your guy. Not necessary to read these in order, but my guess is that kids that love one will want to read them all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabriel | 12/14/2013

    " The setting is a school. The main character is Humphrey. Humphrey is a hamster. He kept sneaking to the library. He wanted to go on a boat race. The boat he was on sunk. He made it to the shore safely. Mr. Fitch, the librarian, gave Humphrey a library card. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela | 12/9/2013

    " I love Humphrey! He makes me want a hamster! Such a cute series and it occurs to me that it would be a great classroom read aloud. Fun and cute! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 12/3/2013

    " Another fun adventure with Humphrey. This book gave me the idea to try reading Treasure Island with the kids. The kids were happy to hear another Humphrey book is in the works. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angie | 8/31/2013

    " Humphrey really is fun. I need to get the rest of them for our collection. I like the quotes at the end of the chapters and the Top Ten lists at the end of the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elodie | 8/26/2013

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jennifer | 7/14/2013

    " The Humphrey series could have been really cute and wonderful, but I felt Humphrey's voice was generic and a bit flat. Would be interesting to see how I'd feel if I read it as a school kid, but as it stands, I'm not going to pick up another of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bridget | 6/25/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hiba | 4/24/2013

    " I thought book had a very nice ending, all though there was not that much adventure in it. The book had an interesting ending, but not man ytwists. I still enjoyed a book from an animals perspective. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shawna | 3/26/2013

    " My girls love these books. I keep trying to call our own hamster Humphrey instead of Honey while reading these books. "

    " I think this is an "okay" book. I just wish Mrs. Brisbane would stop blaming her students for everything. Though, nobody would never know Humphrey was the one who wanted to go sailing on Potter's pond. I hope Humphrey dosen't do that again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 5/20/2011
