Adventure According to Humphrey 
by Betty Birney is the latest in the Humphrey series of books. Humphrey and his classmates are setting sail for adventure.  They are learning about making boats and getting them to sail. Humphrey is visiting the library to learn everything he can about building sea worthy boats. The will take their boats to the local park to see which sails the best in the pond. Humphrey is there along for the ride.
I love these series of books about Humphrey. He is a classroom pet hamster who learns with the children and keeps a journal of information.  Kids will love him and his curiosity.  This series of books had a lot of appeal for second to fourth graders.  
Surprises According to Humphrey is on the Texas Bluebonnet Award Master List for this year.  Humphrey is a winner with kids!
