Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The story of everyones favorite classroom pet is now available in Spanish!

You can learn a lot about life by observing another species. Thats what Humphrey was told when he was first brought to Room 26. And boy, is it true! In addition to his classroom escapades, each weekend this amazing hamster gets to sleep over with a different student, like Lower-Your-Voice-A.J. and Speak-Up-Sayeh. Soon Humphrey learns to read, write, and even shoot rubber bands (only in self-defense, of course). Humphrey has friends, adventures, and a cage with a lock-thatdoesnt- lock. His life would be perfect, if only the teacher, Mrs. Brisbane, wasnt out to get him!

"Humphrey's views underscore the importance of knowing the full story before making judgments, and his presence makes a positive difference in the lives of the people he meets. All in all, a winning book that will appeal to children who like tales about animals, school life, and friendship."—School Library Journal

The first book in the series about everyone's favorite classroom pet!

You can learn a lot about life by observing another species. Thats what Humphrey was told when he was first brought to Room 26. And boy, is it true!

Soon Humphrey learns to read, write, and even shoot rubber bands (only in self-defense, of course). With lots of friends to help, adventures to enjoy, and a cage with a lock-that-doesnt- lock, Humphrey's life is almost perfect. If only the teacher, Mrs. Brisbane, wasnt out to get him!

Boys and girls can't help falling in love with Humphrey!

Synopsis:

A hamsterific celebration of the best time of the year

Room 26 is abuzz. The students are making costumes and practicing their special songs for the Winter Wonderland program and Humphrey is fascinated by all the ways his classmates celebrate the holidays (especially the yummy food). He also has problems to solve like how to get Do-It-Now-Daniel to stop procrastinating, convince Helpful-Holly to stop stressing over presents, and come up with the perfect gift for Og the frog. Of course he manages to do all that while adding delightful heart and humor to the holiday season.

Nominated for twenty-four state awards and the winner of seven, the Humphrey series is a hit across the country. And he's becoming a one school/one book favorite!
