Everyone's favorite classroom pet is unsqueakably thrilled to be in a NEW-NEW-NEW novel to celebrate the Humphrey series’ 20th anniversary!

Room 26 is going to the dogs!

Humphrey knows friends can come in all shapes, sizes, and species, but some big animals—like dogs—can make him NERVOUS-NERVOUS-NERVOUS (remember Clem?!). But then a very gentle dog comes to Longfellow School to help his classmates with reading and he meets another one who can do amazing tricks. There is also a mystery afoot about a lost dog.

Humphrey is hamster-iffic at finding clues and solving mysteries, and he’s eager to lend a paw to find the dog. After all, helping his classmates is his job!

With a fresh voice and an engaging hamster's-eye view of school, families, and treats to hide in a cheek pouch, Betty G. Birney's Humphrey will elicit laughter and a new appreciation for classroom hamsters everywhere.
