The kids in Room 207 didn't appreciate their very nice teacher, Miss Nelson, that is, until Miss Viola Swamp, a wicked witch, came to take Miss Nelson's place when she went missing. I loved this book! The illustrations by James Marshall were great!
My daughters beg to read this one over and over! It's about a naughty class of children who are so terrible that they make their teacher, Miss Nelson leave. Miss Viola Swamp arrives as the substitute teacher...and she is MEAN! Miss Viola Swamp stays on long enough for the kids to appreciate the nice, sweet teacher they had before. When Miss Nelson finally returns, they have changed their ways and are perfect students. You have to love the funny twist at the end, however, that reveals that Miss Nelson never actually left...she just costumed herself to be Miss Viola Swamp, the grouchy, cranky teacher.
Another funny book in this series by Allard. My son loved each and every one of these books. We saved this series for when he has children because they are so timeless and funny.
One of my daughter's favorite books when she was younger.
My toddler discovered this book at daycare and would not stop talking about it. Now that she owns it she tells people that Miss Viola Swamp will come see you. Entertaining and effective book!
In which the kids in 207 first meet Viola Swamp and learn that Miss Nelson is a much sweeter prospect.
Very good book. I read it when I was in elementary school and know reading it to my daughter and she loves it.
