    HUmphrey faces a few disasters in this book. He manages to escape from his cage and get back in before anyone notices and he always manages to survive whatever life throws at him. He is so funny and cute and he loves life in his classroom!

    Trouble according to Humphrey is the third book in a very good series of books.

    Humphrey is a classroom hamster that can talk. He goes home every weekend with one of his class mates or teachers and normally has to try and sort out his class mates problems or worries. One weekend Humphrey gets a bit stuck when trying to help two people make friends again. He ends up heading for water in a toy train!

    Find out what happens to Humphrey today!

    The first book is called The world according to Humphrey.

    I loved it because it was a bit funny in some places and I liked the part when Ogg the slimy green frog jumps up and down so that he splashed water on Mrs. Brisbane’s chin!

    This book is about a hamster called Humphrey who is a classroom pet. He has a next door neighbour who is a frog called Og. I love this book. When the hamster goes on the train ride is my favourite part. I would recommend this book to hamster lovers or for animal lovers in general.
