Where are his friends from the last school year, and who are these kids now filing into Mrs. Brisbane’s classroom? It’s September, and Humphrey, the pet hamster in Room 26, has just returned from his summer holiday at Camp Happy Hollow. He’s eager to see his classmates, but the children entering “his” room are entirely unfamiliar. Og, the pet frog in Room 26, is just as mystified. In the following days, Humphrey gets to know the new pupils.

Being a helpful and observant (as well as poetry-writing) hamster, Humphrey finds himself getting caught up in the students’ difficulties, problems and habits. There’s accident-prone Kelsey, and Phoebe, who always forgets her homework. Harry is consistently late for school. Thomas tells too many “tall tales” and Simon, who has far too much energy, must learn to slow down and be still during lessons.

Humphrey is soon visited by his “old” friends, who miss him. He is very relieved to learn that they have simply graduated into another grade and classroom. School Days According to Humphrey is the seventh book in a charming, entertaining series about Humphrey, written by California author Betty Birney. These school stories would be ideal for an adult to read aloud to a child, and each book includes some related activities at the end.
