Product Details


★ ”This sparkling offshoot of Birney’s Humphrey the hamster series reveals the Room 26 goings-on from the perspective of amphibian Og, a second classroom pet. . . . Laced with environmental facts, this is a heartening tale of cross-species friendship, change, and belonging.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

★ “This first volume in a spinoff series about Humphrey’s pal, Og the frog, offers heart and humor. . . Birney pours the same charm into this new series as she did into the [Humphrey] books. . . An excellent addition to chapter book collections.” —School Library Journal, starred review

“Move over, rodent. There’s a new class pet in town. . . Though writing with her customarily light touch, Birney gives serious thought to the plight of pets caught in the wild, giving voice to every side and debating the most humane response. Og’s miscommunications with Humphrey provide ample comic relief, as do the frog’s songs, which he launches into with gusto. While it may not be that easy being green, this book mixes the sweet and the serious in a ribbitting read.” —Kirkus Reviews
