Betty Birney and Humphrey were very excited to meet Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall at Wimbledon Chase School, London for a brilliant World Book Day event. There were lots of Humphrey fans there, new and old, and to help celebrate the day lots of them were dressed up as their favourite characters. Betty spent quite a long time chatting to everyone and signing lots of the books!
Humphrey will be getting the royal treatment next week when the Duchess of Cornwall Camilla Parker Bowles attends Betty G. Birney's event in Wimbledon on Thursday 3 March! The Duchess will be helping to highlight World Book Day, Wimbledon Bookfest's brand new short story competition and, of course, Humphrey.
March 3rd is World Book Day and no Humphrey fan will want to miss My Treasure Hunt Trouble, written especially for World Book Day and costing just £1.00. To add to the fun, Humphrey author Betty G Birney will be in the UK! Check back here soon to find out where you can see her.
With a whole host of new features – jokes, projects and activities, funny animal videos and competitions – and fan favourites like Your Pet Pictures, Humphrey's new site is a fun, friendly online space. There's a great new game, School Run, and exclusive written material by Betty G. Birney, in the form of short stories and Humphrey's diary. And don't forget to vote for the cutest pets!
