Product Description

The football team hasn't won a game all year. They haven't even scored a single point. They practice only when they feel like it, and neither Principal Blandsworth's admonition nor Coach Armstrong's heart rending sobs spur them on. Something has to be done. On a certain day when no one wants to practice, the coach's whistle blows, and the team cannot believe what they see: It's that substitute teacher from times past, the terrible tyrant from Miss Nelson's Room 207. The team knows they're in for it when she shouts for all to hear, "I am Coach Swamp."

The surprise twist to Miss Swamp's outrageous and rollicking story will delight and mystify the multitude of fans that Harry Allard and James Marshall have won with Miss Nelson Is Missing! and Miss Nelson Is Back. Softcover edition.

Author Bio

Harry Allard is the author of several hilarious books for children, including three books about Miss Nelson and four books about the Stupid family, all illustrated by James Marshall. He currently lives in Oaxaca, Mexico.
James Marshall (1942–1992) created dozens of exuberant and captivating books for children, including The Stupids, Miss Nelson Is Missing!, and the ever-popular George and Martha books. Before creating his canon of classic, hilarious children’s books, James Marshall played the viola, studied French, and received a master’s degree from Trinity College. He also doodled. It was the doodles, and the unforgettable characters that emerged from them, that led him to his life’s work as one of the finest creators of children’s books of the twentieth century. In 2007, James Marshall was posthumously awarded the Laura Ingalls Wilder medal for his lasting contribution to literature for children.
