School According to Humphrey Synopsis

Dear Friends, After a fur-raising holiday at Camp Happy Hollow, I looked forward to returning to Room 26 to see all my old friends. Mrs. Brisbane was still there, but I was shocked to find the classroom full of strangers, like Rolling Rosie, Hurry-Up-Harry and Forgetful Phoebe. At first, all I wanted to do was find my old classmates. But I soon learned that these new students really-really-really needed a helping paw from me. In the end, I learned that even if you're a small hamster, you can never have too many friends! Your furry friend, Humphrey.
