- DescriptionThe first book in the series about everyone's favorite classroom pet! You can learn a lot about life by observing ather species. That s what Humphrey was told when he was first brought to Room 26. And boy, is it true!

Soon Humphrey learns to read, write, and even shoot rubber bands (only in self-defense, of course). With lots of friends to help, adventures to enjoy, and a cage with a lock-that-doesn t- lock, Humphrey's life is almost perfect. If only the teacher, Mrs. Brisbane, wasn t out to get him!
