About the Book

The kids in Room 207 take advantage of their teacher's good nature until she disappears and they are faced with a vile substitute. "Rarely has the golden rule been so effectively interpreted for children."--"Booklist." Full-color illustrations.

Book Synopsis

The classic, hilarious story of a misbehaving class, their sweet teacher, and the legendary substitute teacher who restores order in their chaotic classroom. Includes bonus downloadable audio.

Miss Nelson's class always acts up--especially when their teacher is absent from school! But after a week with their strict substitute, Viola Swamp, the kids can't wait for Miss Nelson to come back. Full of tongue-in-cheek humor and James Marshall's simply silly illustrations, this is the ultimate back-to-school book or teacher gift: Accept no substitute!
