Product description

You can learn a lot about life by observing another species. That’s what Humphrey was told when he was bought as a classroom pet. And it’s true! As the hamster for the whole of Room 26, Humphrey’s used to working out what makes people tick. But has he got what it takes to help Pay-Attention-Art with his schoolwork, make friends with his new rival, Og the frog… and dodge scary teacher Mrs Brisbane, the only person who refuses to be Humphrey’s friend to the end? From an award-winning series with many devoted followers, these books take a wise and quirky look at the world from a hamster’s perspective.

“Humphrey, a delightful, irresistible character, is big hearted, observant and creative, and his experiences, whether escaping a nosy dog or helping an immigrant family speak English, range from comedic to touching.” Booklist
