School Library Journal - 06/01/2014 K-Gr 3—Friday is always an exciting day for Humphrey, the class hamster. That's when he finds out where he will spend the weekend away from his usual home at Longfellow School. This time it will be Mandy's house. Her own hamster, Winky, has his very own hamster-size car. Humphrey falls in love with driving the first time he's behind the wheel and wishes he had his own car to race Winky. Lucky for him, the teacher in Room 26 is able to make his dream a reality. This is an appealing story for children making the transition from easy readers to chapter books. Humphrey is a sweet protagonist who makes amusing observations about the students. The black-and-white illustrations throughout support the simple text. Purchase where transitional chapter books are needed.—Beth Cuddy, Seward Elementary School, Auburn, NY - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
