Trouble According to Humphrey by Betty G Birney
Faber and Faber ISBN 9780571236145

Dear Friends, Room 26 of Longfellow School, where I live, is usually a peaceful place. But all of a sudden, problems popped up. Pay-Attention-Art's marks went DOWN-DOWN-DOWN. Don't-Complain-Mandy-Payne's family had unsqueakable problems. Worst of all, Golden-Miranda, an almost perfect human, was in big trouble...and it was all my fault. How could one small (but smart) hamster solve all these problems without getting into more trouble? You can find out all about my latest adventures right here! Your funny, furry friend, Humphrey
