Synopsis

Friendship According To Humphrey by Betty G. Birney

When Og the Frog came to live in Room 26, Humphrey felt a little jealous. Still, he tried to be welcoming but discovered that it's hard to make friends with a frog. Then he found out that his fellow students were having problems with their friends, too. AJ and Garth had to deal with a bully named Martin, and Heidi and Gail had a terrible argument.

Reviews

'Humphrey, a delightful, irresistible character, is big hearted, observant and creative, and his experiences, whether escaping a nosy dog or helping an immigrant family speak english, range from comedic to touching.' Booklist

Betty Birney on Betty Birney:

I wrote my first "book" at age seven. It was called "Teddy Bear in the Woods" and was followed by a sequel. Luckily, my parents encouraged my writing and my sister, Janet, was a great writer and role model.

I didn't just write, however. When I wasn't roller-skating (my favorite pastime), I was riding my bike, playing piano, swimming, reading, playing cards and board games or just hanging out with my friends. I loved school, but I loved vacations, too!
