Being a classroom hamster means having to be ready for anything?but suddenly there are a lot of big surprises in Humphrey?s world. Some are exciting, like seeing the playground during a fire drill and getting to roll around in a hamster ball. But some aren?t so good, like a cat creeping around, a different janitor who might be from another planet, and the most shocking thing of all?the possibility of Mrs. Brisbane retiring.

Even with all that?s going on, Humphrey makes time to help a few classmates with their problems. But could Mrs. Brisbane leaving school be one problem that?s just too big for this little guy to solve?

Friendship According to Humphrey received a Christopher Award, and kids voted The World According to Humphrey the winner of children?s choice awards in six states. Plus, it?s been nominated for ten others.

    This was such a fun book! It was really nice to read and it is good for relaxation. I would recommend this for ages 9+ and for fans of I, Houdini.

      This book is great. I like it. It’s a lot of surprise. Some are good ones. Also, Humphrey is smart enough to help his friends and get a lot of surprise.

                      Wow! This book is funny and amazing. I love thses series. Its about a class pet hamster who thinks he is a student and studies and has a dicanery and things like that. But his experinces are diffrent from what i would let my hamster do. Hope you read it.
