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

Even with all thatís going on, Humphrey makes time to help a few classmates with their problems. But could Mrs. Brisbane leaving school be one problem thatís 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 childrenís choice awards in six states. Plus, itís been nominated for ten others.
