Book SynopsisThe 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.

And there's that steady supply of crickets . . .
