Sent to live in Room 26, Humphrey, the class hamster, begins to learn a lot about humans through simple observation from his cage, in an amusing tale about a curious creature who takes full advantage of his educational opportunities. *Author: Birney, Betty G. *Series Title: Humphrey *Publication Date: 2004/02/01 *Number of Pages: 124 *Binding Type: Hardcover *Grade Level: 3-4 *Language: English *Depth: 0.75 *Width: 5.75 *Height: 8.50
From the Publisher:
You can learn a lot about life by observing another species. ThatÂ's what Humphrey was told when he was first brought to Room 26. And boy is it true! There are always adventures in the classroom and each weekend he gets to sleep over with different students. Humphrey learns to read, write, shoot rubber bands (only in self-defense, of course), turn off TVs, teach English as a second language, and more. With a lock-that-doesnÂ't-lock and an adventurous spirit, what more could a mischievous hamster want?

With a fresh voice and an engaging, hamsterÂ's-eye view of school, families, and treats to hide in a cheek pouch, Betty G. BirneyÂ's Humphrey will elicit laughter and demands for hamsters in every elementary classroom.


Publishers Weekly
"Humphrey's matter-of-fact, table-view of the world is alternately silly and profound, and Birney captures his unique blend of innocence and earnestness from the start. Given the perky protagonist and chipper delivery, middle-grade readers are sure to savor this classroom caper." 01/19/2004
