    My first grade son had been looking forward to reading this book ever since we saw a Coming Soon advertisement at the end of one of the other Humphrey books We were super excited to finally read it In many ways, this book delivers just what you would expect from a Humphrey book Humphrey pays attention in class, he sometimes leaves his cage during the week when the school is empty, and he goes home with his classroom friends on the weekends and finds ways to help them But, in my opinion, th My first grade son h

    I liked this book, and my son liked this book, but we didn t think it was Humphrey at his best As another reviewer pointed out, what were talked about in this book were homophones , and not homonyms it is kind of a small point, unless you are in school learning about them Also, most books, this one included I m sure, are not written with just a sentence, then a paragraph, and then a book There is usually an outline involved, and many, many drafts.
