EEK-EEK-EEK! Mrs. Brisbane is missing!

Humphrey has always investigated things, like why Speak-Up-Sayeh was so quiet and Tall-Paul and Small-Paul didn't get along, but this is a true mystery—Mrs. Brisbane is missing! She just didn't show up in Room 26 one morning and no one told Humphrey why. The class has a substitute teacher, called Mr. E., but he's no Mrs. Brisbane. Humphrey has just learned about Sherlock Holmes, so he vows to be just as SMART-SMART-SMART about collecting clues and following leads to solve the mystery of Mrs. Brisbane (and a few others along the way).

Nominated for twenty-four state awards and the winner of seven, the Humphrey series is a hit across the country.

Review title: Hamster Happenings. Mysteries with Humphrey is "fun-tastic". There are so many unanswered questions for Humphrey that you will be caught up in the mystery and suspense of unraveling the clues. Humphrey keeps you on your "paws"/toes and keeps your brain working to figure out the students' personal lives and what is happening with the teachers. Truly entertaining reading.
