Rv: Humpfree The Humpless Camel by Julia Dweck

Today I am delighted to bring you another awesome pre-release from Julia Dweck

The Humpless Camel
Description from Amazon:
“Now Humpfree Camel had no humps.
His back was free of any lumps.
While others had one bump or two,
Just where were Humpfree’s? No one knew.”
Humpfree’s back is as flat as a pancake and he’s not taking it lying down. He’s off on a wild search looking for his humps, but there are lots of bumps along the way. What would you do if you were a humpless, bumpless camel?
Readers will enjoy the humor and rhyme of this adventure, based on scientists’ true discovery of a new flat back camel species in East Africa. Young explorers will be fascinated by Mrs. Dweck’s true and amazing fun facts about camels to extend the learning. It all adds up to one edutaining adventure for young readers.
Our Review:
Humpfree is yet another delightful rhyming digital picture book that had us chortling at every turn of the page.
When Humpfree realises he doesn't have any lumps he puts his detective skills to the test. He tries all manor of hump substitutes including, balloons, burlap bags, sand bags, boulders, porcupines, even feathers, but none of his bumps will stay as permanent humps.
Just when Humpfree is about to give up in despair, he is met by a scientist who discovers that Humpfree is not just any camel, he is a rare, HUMPLESS breed, who could ever imagine.
There is a lovely lesson in accepting yourself as the wonderfully unique being that you are and I for one am so delighted to be able to share this with toddler. Who by the way, sat through the entire book, eyes glued to the page.
Another 5 stars from us....
But wait, Humpfree is not even released yet, he he.
But he is available for pre-order until October 5.
And where else can we find Ms Dwecks wonderful books.


  1. How adorable. Love it.
    I want to mention, you should add a search bar on your blog. I was looking for something from the past on your blog and I couldn't easily search it up. It is easy to add in blogger. :) If I missed it let me know.
