The adventure continues in Room 26 with Humphrey's frog-tastic best friend, Og the Frog!
Og the Frog has just moved into Room 26, and the place is hopping. There are lively kids, new routines, and a furry neighbor who seems to squeak all day. Luckily, everyone seems friendly and--BING, BANG, BOING!--some even put juicy crickets in his tank. But just as Og is getting used to this new life, there is talk of sending him back to the pond. Sure, he misses his friends, but now he has a lot more time for his favorite hobby--making up songs and poems--and he loves listening to his new friends and giving them encouraging BOINGS just when they need them. And there's that steady supply of crickets . . .
Og doesn't want to say goodbye to his new life or his furry neighbor. But will his classmates decide to keep Og as their classroom pet or take him back to his old life, at the pond?
