The World According to Humphrey by Betty G. BirneyThe TerribleTwo

You can learn a lot about life by observing another species. That's what Humphrey was told when he was first brought to Room 26. And boy is it true! There are always adventures in the classroom and each weekend he gets to sleep over with a different student, like Lower-Your-Voice-A.J. and Speak-Up Sayeh. Humphrey learns to read, write, shoot rubber bands (only in self-defense, of course), and much more. With a lock-that-doesn't-lock and an adventurous spirit, Humphrey's life would be perfect if only the teacher, Mrs. Brisbane, wasn't out to get him.
 
With a fresh voice and an engaging, hamster's-eye view of school and families, Betty G. Birney's Humphrey will elicit laughter and a new appreciation for classroom hamsters everywhere.
