Everyone's favorite classroom pet is now starring in chapter books! Humphrey, the classroom hamster of Room 26, loves spending weekends with his classmates. This week, he is going home with Richie. Humphrey is going to help him with his science experiment (hamsters LOVE-LOVE-LOVE to be helpful). But Humphrey finds a surprise at Richie's house. Poppy the puppy is bouncy and barky and is eager to play--a little too eager, Humphrey thinks. Humphrey needs to get out of his cage to help Richie, but can he do that and stay out of Poppy's way at the same time? With adorable illustrations and an easy reading level, Humphrey's Tiny Tales are just right for emergent readers.

Review quote

"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."-School Library Journal"Birney has created the kind of series that first- and second-grade readers will love. It's set in school, the vocabulary is accessible, the font and spacing are generous, and the frequent illustrations tie the story together. New readers will be 'HAPPY-HAPPY-HAPPY' to see this promising new series." -Kirkus Reviews
