About the Book

To celebrate his tenth birthday the whole Humphrey series has a smart new livery, repositioning him alongside perennial favourites such as Winnie-the-Pooh and Paddington.

Humphrey enjoys surprises as much as the next hamster, like his brand new hamster ball or a surprise part, but sometimes surprises can be bad... Like coming whisker to whisker with a cat (EEK!) or having an alien from another planet move into Room 26! All this and LOTS-LOTS-LOTS more happens in Humphrey's new book of adventures, Surprises According to Humphrey.

Praise for Humphrey:

'An effective exploration of the joys and pains of making and keeping friends, which will strike a chord with many children.' Daily Telegraph

'A charming, feel-good tale.' Irish Times

'Humphrey's matter-of-fact, table-level view of the world is alternately silly and profound and Birney captures his unique blend of innocence and earnestness.' Publisher's Weekly

'Humphrey, a delightful, irresistible character, is big hearted, observant and creative.' Booklist
