Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 10/01/2014 Gr 1–3—Humphrey, the helpful classroom pet introduced in The World According to Humphrey (Putnam, 2004) and who appears in subsequent titles, is featured in a shorter, illustrated tale. In this installment, the hamster attempts to make Richie's science project a success while avoiding his boisterous puppy. This title has the same characters, humorous action, and gentle tone of the original, but the large print, short chapters, and numerous cartoon-style illustrations make this one suitable for readers new to chapter books. The children in Humphrey's class are diverse, and the appealing story contains multiple STEM tie-ins, including animal facts and science project tips. A solid purchase that will extend Humphrey's popularity to younger readers.—Lisa Goldstein, Brooklyn Public Library - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
