Publisher's Description

El Mundo de acuerdo a Humphrey, un cuento encantador y gracioso, es la primera aventura de la mascota preferida de todos. !Bienvenido al Aula 26, Humphrey!


Puedes aprender mucho acerca de la vida observando a otras especies.

Eso es lo que primero le dicen a Humphrey cuando lo llevan al Aula 26. ¡Y vaya si es verdad! Además de sus escapadas en las clase, este increíble hámster va cada find de semana a dormir a la casa de un estudiante diferente. En poco tiempo, Humphrey aprende a leer ya a escribir, y a lanzar gomas elásticas, pero solo en defensa propia.. La vida de Humphrey sería absolutamente perfecta, si no fuese por esa maestra ¡que trata de deshacerse de el!

"Humphrey es simpático y de gran corazón. Ya la lectura de este libro es simplemente ¡buena-buena-buena!"—Kirkus Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Humphrey...

"Humphrey es simpático y de gran corazón. Ya la lectura de este libro es simplemente ¡buena-buena-buena!"—Kirkus Reviews

"A likable hamster narrates this novel for newly independent readers….Birney succeeds in developing the animal’s character without the narrative becoming too cute or contrived. Humphrey's views underscore the importance of knowing the full story before making judgments, and his presence makes a positive difference in the lives of the people he meets. All in all, a winning book that will appeal to children who like tales about animals, school life, and friendship."—School Library Journal

"The story deftly avoids triteness while still feeling breezy and acknowledging deeply felt troubles, such as Mrs. Brisbane's husband’s depression. The pet-care tips punctuating each chapter would benefit any youngster thinking about getting a hamster, but for everyone else, this read is simply good-good-good."—Kirkus Reviews
