Product description

Surprises can be good, like getting a brand new hamster-ball or going to a surprise party. But surprises can be bad, like coming whisker-to-whisker with a cat (eeek!) or having an alien from another planet move into Room 26. And guess what? All those things and lots more happen in the latest book of adventures starring Humphrey, the nicest, smartest school hamster in town! Another wise, quirky look at life and the world from a hamster’s perspective, from an award-winning series with many devoted followers.
