To celebrate his tenth birthday the whole Humphrey series has a smart new livery, repositioning him alongside perennial favourites such as Winnie-the-Pooh and Paddington. When Humphrey hears about a sailing competition on Potter's Pond, he longs for a BIG-BIG-BIGGER adventure. And believe us, he gets one .
. . but it isn't all smooth sailing.
He helps out his classmates, takes an unsqueakably dangerous voyage of his own, and even comes face-to-face with a pirate!Praise for Humphrey:'An effective exploration of the joys and pains of making and keeping friends, which will strike a chord with many children.' Daily Telegraph'A charming, feel-good tale.' Irish Times'Humphrey's matter-of-fact, table-level view of the world is alternately silly and profound and Birney captures his unique blend of innocence and earnestness.' Publisher's Weekly'Humphrey, a delightful, irresistible character, is big hearted, observant and creative.' Booklist
