Best-selling class hamster Humphrey finds out many fascinating things as a new term begins in Room 26. It all begins when the words ‘pharaoh, papyrus, pyramid and hieroglyphics’ appear on the classroom blackboard… Suddenly, Humphrey finds himself caught up in all kinds of secrets from far-off Egypt. And, like many others, he finds that keeping secrets isn’t a good idea! ~ Julia Eccleshare
In Room 26 Humphrey’s friends are learning all about the secrets of the Ancient Egyptians and Humphrey is happy-happy-happy to be listening along. But then he overhears the teachers mention that a member of the class will be leaving. It’s another secret, but Humphrey is determined to find out who’s going.
In this delightful new adventure, Humphrey learns not just about Ancient Egypt, but about different kinds of secrets. Usually, it’s a bad idea to keep a secret, but they can be UNSQUEAKABLY good!
