    Og loves the kids in Room 26, but he's awfully curious about the human world outside his tank! His friend Humphrey has no problem getting out and about, but it's harder for Og because he can't climb the way a hamster can. But Og never let hard work or fear stop him from going after what he wants. And he's determined to help the tads in Room 26 understand that taking risks can pay off - especially when they are being true to themselves.

    On March 25, 1911, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York City burst into flames. The factory was crowded. The doors were locked to ensure workers stayed inside. One hundred forty-six people - mostly women - perished; it was one of the most lethal workplace fires in American history, until September 11, 2001. But the story of the fire is not the story of one accidental moment in time. It is a story of immigration and hard work to make it in a new country, as Italians and Jews and others traveled to America to find a better life.

    Rose is the youngest of seven children, meant to replace her dead sister. Maybe because of that, she’s never really fit in. She’s always felt different, out of place, a restless wanderer in a family of homebodies. So when an enormous white bear mysteriously shows up and asks her to come away with it—in exchange for health and prosperity for her ailing family—she readily agrees.

    When Og the Frog first comes to Room 26, he doesn't know what to think. He misses his friends from the pond, there are all kinds of strange noises, and the water is his tank just might be too clean (you know, a little muck never hurt anyone). But the furry, squeaky fellow living next to him is endlessly entertaining, the kids sure are friendly, and - BING, BANG, BOING! - they put big fat crickets right into his tank. All of this gives Og lots of ideas for one of his favorite pastime - making up poems and songs. But he gets stumped when talk turns to sending him back to the pond.

Jack did the only thing he could do - he went ashore to look for another line of work.
