Humphrey is excited to celebrate the kids of Room 26 with the first birthday party of the year!
Kirk invites the class to his super-fun backward birthday bash, where everything is backward, including clothes! The kids in Room 26 have a great time, but they are sad when they realize that Humphrey, Og, and Ms. Brisbane aren't on the birthday calendar. Everyone starts whispering and Humphrey can only make out a few words, but he thinks he knows what they're planning--a birthday celebration for Ms. Brisbane!
But when Friday comes around, Humphrey learns he was all wrong--the surprise party is for Humphrey and Og instead! With sweet illustrations and an easy reading level, Humphrey's Tiny Tales are hamster-iffic for emerging readers.
