Everyone's favorite classroom pet is starring in chapter books! 
Class pets don't usually go to the school fair, but of course Humphrey does!

Besides the usual bouncy castles, beanbag games, painted faces, and delicious treats, Longfellow School's fair is also having a contest for best class spirit. Of course everyone in Room 26 agrees that Humphrey and Og are the biggest reasons their class is so special, and they make costumes and signs to show everyone why. Humphrey is disappointed when he hears it will be too hot and sunny for a hamster or frog to go to the fair. Good thing they have friends who are full of good ideas!
Just right for readers transitioning from easy-to-reads to chapter books, Humphrey's Tiny Tales chapter books simply make kids HAPPY-HAPPY-HAPPY.

Praise For…

"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 on Humphrey's Really Wheely Racing Day

"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."–School Library Journal on Humphrey's Really Wheely Racing Day
