Book Review by Noah Lee: Secrets According to Humphrey

This book is about Humphrey, class pet of room 26. The class is on an Egyptian unit and is facing a problem on secrets clubs and gestures! Joey doesn’t want to read other books other than Robot the Rabbit, people are keeping Humphrey and Og, the class frog in the dark, and someone is leaving, but for some reason, Mrs. Brisbane is happy for them. Humphrey must visit the library, searching for answers and solutions, like the answer to “What animal walks on 4 legs in the morning, 2 in the day, and 3 in the night?” To make matters worse, when Humphrey drops his notebook and Aldo throws it into the trash, he must go get it! Unfortunately, that leads to the garbage bag spilling and Aldo putting traps about! Finally, the secrets come to an end and Humphrey understands everything that the adults and children talked about.

The genre is comedy and fiction, since Humphrey and many of the characters do goofy things that are sure to make you laugh, and fiction is pretty self-explanatory. People around 4 to 10 years old would enjoy this book. People who would be the most interested would be people who have already read the Humphrey books, or people who like hamsters/ needs to learn how to deal with secrets.

I would give this book a 5 out of 5 stars since not many books make the lesson on secrets interesting, and if you didn’t understand the lessons, it is written much more clearly at the end.

Put this book on hold!
