Everyone's favorite classroom pet sure is busy with trouble in Room 26!

Humphrey usually helps solve problems, but now he’s caused a big one: Golden-Miranda gets in trouble when Humphrey is caught outside of his cage on her watch. No one knows about his lock-that-doesn’t-lock and he can’t exactly squeak up on her behalf. While Humphrey manages to show Pay-Attention-Art that math is important outside of class, help Sit-Still-Seth actually sit still, and survive a trip to the vet, can he clear Miranda’s name without giving up his freedom forever?

Friendship According to Humphrey received a Christopher Award and kids voted The World According to Humphrey the winner of state book awards in RI, MD and PA. Plus, it’s nominated for eleven others so far (WA, MN, FL, LA, OK, SC, PA, NC, UT, IA, ME). Reviewers have called him “delightful,” “irresistible,” “big hearted” and “perky.”

Hip! Hip! Hoo-ray for Humphrey! Humphrey is at it again, this time with another grand adventure to Art's house. What is Art working on? Why is he distracted in class? Who is Paul? Why is he important to the story? What happened to Miranda when she was the pet monitor? Was the situation with Miranda solved? If your interested has been sparked by these questions, you will learn the answers when you read about our protagonist in this fun, enjoyable novel. A well developed story and entertaining characters will capture your attention and keep you reading, and you should be able to complete Humphrey's adventure in one weekend or over several days after school.
