A Spanish-language edition of the very popular Harry Allard-James Marshall collaboration about Room 207's missing schoolteacher. Miss Nelson is the nicest teacher in the whole school. She never yells, and she gives the easiest assignments. Then one day Miss Nelson is not at school. There is a substitute, Miss Viola Swamp, who immediately lays down the law - no talking, no goofing off in class - and gives lots of homework. Where is the wonderful, unappreciated Miss Nelson? Is she ever coming back? Allard and Marshall, with their incisive feel for the nuances of relationships, point out with imagination and much humor the folly of being inconsiderate and unappreciative.

The kids in 207 "were the worst-behaved class in the whole school," even during story hour - a deadly sin. After a surfeit of spitballs, their sweet and permissive teacher, Miss Nelson, reappears disguised as Miss Viola Swamp, and loads them down with homework, forces them to behave, and cuts out story time. The vacuous Detective McSmogg is no help with the disappearance, and the children propose a shark attack or a trip to Mars to explain it. . . "or maybe Miss Nelson's car was carried off by a swarm of angry butterflies." Miss Nelson "returns" - minus wig, ugly dress, false nose - to find the class remarkably changed. The message is clear, the plot predictable, but there's fun in the telling and Marshall's "stupid," innocent, funny-ugly characters. The broadly comic illustrations are varied - individual portraits, full pages - and filled with details like spitballs stuck on the ceiling. Another slightly twisted and engaging Allard/Marshall collaboration. (Kirkus Reviews)
