Friendship According to Humphrey

Dear Friends. When Og the Frog came to live in Room 26, I felt a little jealous. I tried to be welcoming but I soon discovered that it’s HARD-HARD-HARD to make friends with a lumpy, bumpy frog! Then I found out that my fellow students were having problems with their friends too. A.J. and Garth had to deal with a bully named Mean Martin Bean. Heidi and Gail had a terrible argument, and Miranda-Golden had a new stepsister who wasn’t nice at all.

Humphrey the hamster loves helping others, but he needs a helping hand himself when new class pet Og the Frog turns him green with envy. Will he find a way to put his jealousy behind him so that they can all be friends to the end?
