Room 26 is all abuzz. Humphrey the hamster and the students in Mrs. Brisbane's class get ready for the holidays and a special Winter Wonderland program.
From the Publisher
A hamsterific celebration of the best time of the year
Room 26 is abuzz. The students are making costumes and practicing their special songs for the Winter Wonderland program and Humphrey is fascinated by all the ways his classmates celebrate the holidays (especially the yummy food). He also has problems to solve like how to get Do-It-Now-Daniel to stop procrastinating, convince Helpful-Holly to stop stressing over presents, and come up with the perfect gift for Og the frog. Of course he manages to do all that while adding delightful heart and humor to the holiday season.
Nominated for twenty-four state awards and the winner of seven, the Humphrey series is a hit across the country. And he''s becoming a one school/one book favorite!
