My 8 year requested the newest of the series so I figure I get the older ones. The set is a great deal but I could not figure out what 3 books you get. You get the first 3 books; The World According to Humphrey, Friendship According to Humphrey and Trouble According to Humphrey.

I am so glad I listened to my eight years old suggestion and purchased this collection of three highly entertaining chapter books. It was highly recommended also by his elementary school teacher. Apparently this cute favorite class pet hamster's take on some serious matters like The World, Friendship and Trouble has a great appeal on kids. I have to admit I have enjoyed reading it with my son because Humphrey has a great sense of humor, he is a great observer and his smart thoughts are narrated in a captivating and flawless first-person narrative. One more little thing that I particularly enjoyed: each chapters ends with a famous quote or funny tip about the theme featured in the book.

The books are more delightful than I could have imagined. Even if Grandma and Grandpa love them, the grandkids might not. In this case everyone loved them. We keep them in the car and they are read when we visit the different families. Keep up the good work and the price is great too.

My friend's kid doesn't like to read. Her brother just got a hamster. She LOVES that hamster so I thought the books might catch her attention. As Humphry would say, "I was right, right, right!" Her mom says she LOVES to read them!

The books are super cute, told from the perspective of the hamster, teach new words/concepts, and even tie in social skills! Excellent all around. (Don't tell anyone, but I thought they were so cute that I have enjoyed reading all 9 or so of them in the last few weeks!)

Our 8-year old granddaughter was introduced to Humphrey in school, and has been asking for some Humphrey books. She was thrilled to get them, probably will need to get more!

We have really loved the Humphrey series! My 8 yr. old son and my 5 yr. old daughter are both listening each night and can hardly wait until we pick up the book again. Usually at bedtime, my husband and I split up, reading princesses and mermaids to my daughter and superhero books to my son. It has been so nice to find a series that they both love and we can share in together!

My 3rd grader enjoys them. My 1st grade enjoys them. These are a great set of books. Told from the point of view of a class hamster, the Humphrey stories keep their interest.
