Humphrey the hamster loves to solve problems for his classmates in Room 26, but he never meant to create one! Golden-Miranda, one of his favorite students, gets blamed when Humphrey is caught outside of his cage while she’s in charge. Since no one knows about his lock-that-doesn’t-lock, he can’t exactly squeak up to defend her. Can Humphrey clear Miranda’s name without giving up his freedom forever?

Grade 2–4—Humphrey is just as lovable and sweet as he was in Friendship According to Humphrey (Putnam, 2005). Still a classroom pet, the hamster learns that his freedom may not be as important as his loyalty to his human friends. The students of Room 26 are assigned jobs as part of a social-studies project. When the hamster gets out of his cage, it is not because the student in charge did not lock the door, but because it does not lock. Humphrey feels guilty for getting his friend in trouble and spends the rest of the book trying to make it right. Along the way, he helps a child learn how to concentrate, reunites two friends, is banned from the classroom, and visits the vet. His escapades teach honesty, responsibility, and the consequences of actions. Essential reading for students who already love Humphrey.—Delia Carruthers, Sunset Ridge Middle School, West Jordan, UT
