    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!

    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!
