Product Description

When the high-spirited kids in Room 207 learn that Miss Nelson is to be away for several days, they begin to make plans. What better time to act up and be wild?

They change their tune, however, when they hear all about the terrible Viola Swamp - the meanest substitute in the whole wide world. "Oooh", they say.

Naturally, when Mr Blandsworth, the school principle, decides to take over for Miss Nelson, the kids in 207 are relieved. No Miss Swamp to worry about. But when relief turns to boredom, see what exciting plan they cook up! But no need to worry, Miss Swamp is still around! Ages 5-10. Softcover Edition.

Author Bio

Harry Allard is the author of many hilarious books for children, including several Miss Nelson and Stupid Family titles, all illustrated by James Marshall.
 
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.

Publisher's Weekly

Miss Nelson goes away for a week, and the kids in Room 207 fear that they'll have the dreaded substitute teacher, Viola Swamp. Instead, they get Principal Blandsworth, who bores them into taking drastic measures. ``A nutty sequel to Miss Nelson Is Missing,'' PW stated. ``Marshall's color cartoons and the twisty tale rise to stratospheric heights of buffoonery.'' (48)
