    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.
