Humphrey has learned a lot from being the classroom hamster in Room 26 at Longfellow School. And although he loves having amazing adventures in and out of his cage, hes also quite good at solving puzzles and telling the most hilarious jokes! In fact, hes put together this whole book of his favorite games, brain teasers, and jokes for everyone who thinks they can be as smart (or as funny) as a hamster! Come and have some FUN-FUN-FUN with everyones favorite classroom pet!
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!
From the author of "The World According to Humphrey" comes the hamster's first-person narrative about his budding friendship with a frog. Includes a bonus reader's guide and activities.
After the holidays, Humphrey is shocked by a big surprise in Room 26-a new class pet! Humphrey tries to be welcoming, but Og the frog doesn't respond to any of his friendly squeaks or visits (remember, he has a lock-that-doesn't-lock). Plus, the students are so interested in Og, they almost stop paying attention to Humphrey altogether. Humphrey doesn't like the mad-bad-sad feelings he's had since Og came, but luckily he still gets to have adventures with different kids on the weekends. Friendship can be tricky, but Humphrey is an intrepid problem-solver. If any hamster can become buddies with a frog, he can.
