Everyone's favourite hamster, Humphrey, tells us everything we need to know about the world of pets, from fantastic facts and pet-care tips to Humphrey's animal Hall of Fame. Dear friends, Humans love their pets, and pets like me love their humans. I'm unsqueakably excited to share everything I've learned in Classroom 26 and beyond about the world of pets with you. And hamsters aren't the only pets! Do you know how to look after a chinchilla? What is a puppy's favourite food? As well as learning top pet-care tips, you can tell me all about your pets in the special My Precious Pet section. I can't wait to meet them! Your furry friend, Humphrey.
