Room 26 has a new class pet, Og the frog. Humphrey can’t wait to be friends with Og, but Og doesn’t seem interested. To make matters worse, the students are so fascinated by Og, they almost stop paying attention to Humphrey altogether! Humphrey knows that friendship can be a tricky business, but if any hamster can become buddies with a frog, Humphrey can! “[Humphrey’s] lively, first-person narrative, filled with witty commentary on human and hamster behavior, makes for an engaging, entertaining read.” – Booklist “ Wise observations (a la Beverly Cleary) of friendship in the story of two newcomers, a frog and a shy little girl.” – Chicago Tribune

Grade 2-4 - The adorable and intelligent hamster introduced in The World According to Humphrey (Putnam, 2004) is dismayed to find that he shares his status as classroom pet with a frog. Try as he might, Humphrey cannot seem to make friends with Og, who just splashes him or says "BOING!" The little rodent, who can secretly write, learn, and get out of his cage, also uses his wits to effect positive outcomes of the various subplots, including a new girl who won't talk and has trouble making friends, two pals who get into a terrible fight, a bully who causes trouble on the bus, and the janitor who dreams of going back to college. The theme of friendship is as pervasive as the title implies, making this chapter book a charming read-aloud. Pair this tale with Frank Asch's Survival School (S & S, 2003) for an appreciation of animals in the classroom. - Debbie Whitbeck, West Ottawa Public Schools, Holland, MI
