At each house Humphrey goes on various wild adventures, helps out the family secretly, and learns new things such as how to shoot a rubber band at a dog when you are being attaked! Mrs. Brisbane's house There is a day when every student is going out of town for the weekend and there is no one to take care of Humphrey except Mrs. Brisbane, where Humphrey knows all will not go well The Climax! The climax of this story was when Humphrey was in the car heading towards Mrs. Brisbane's house. Humphrey knew that all would not go well.....and Humphrey was right. My Opinion I think the World According to Humphrey was an amazing book. It had excitement, humor, and parts where I couldn't put the book down! I would reccomend this book to anyone that likes funny books and animals. My rating to this book is five stars.
