Friendship According to Humphrey

By: Betty G. Birney

This is a great book by Betty G Birney and if you like hamsters or frogs as classroom pets then you will like this book.


Humphrey is a class pet and he is so excited to see the new class pet but there is a problem. All the kids love Humphrey, but when Og comes along along all of the kids in room 26 almost forget about Humphrey. Humphrey wants to know what it is but he can't see through the blanket over the glass box next to the cage. Once ms. Brisbane uncovers the cage it was what he didn't want, a frog. The frogs name is Og. Humphrey wasn't so happy but he tries to be friends with him but frog can't speak hamster and hamster can't speak frog. Humphrey isn't happy at all. At the end Humphrey doesn't care how much attention he gets it just matters that Og is a friend.
