'The time had arrived to put my plan into action. I was in
grave danger and I had no choice. I only had one weapon: a rubber
band. It had taken me a long time to get it hooked around the edge
of my food dish. Now I carefully pulled it back as far as I could,
aiming directly at those big doggy nostrils.'
You can learn a lot about life by observing another species.
That's what Humphrey was told when he was bought as a classroom pet
for Room 26. And it's definitely true! In addition to his classroom
escapades, each weekend he gets to sleep over with a different
student like Stop-Giggling-Gail and Repeat-That-Please-Richie.
Humphrey learns to read, write, shoot rubber bands and much more.
With adventures galore, Humphrey's life would be absolutely perfect
if only the teacher, Mrs Brisbane, wasn't out to get him . . .
