The kids in Room 207 were misbehaving again. Spitballs stuck to the ceiling. Paper planes whizzing through the air. They were the worst-behaved class in the whole school.

So begins this quirky classic, first published in 1977 and still relevant today as a lighthearted reminder to show our appreciation to those we value. The students don’t proffer a shred of respect for their good-natured teacher Miss Nelson, but when the witchy substitute Miss Viola Swamp appears on the scene, they start to regret their own wicked ways. James Marshall’s scritchy, cartoonish full-color ink and wash illustrations are hilarious. A back-to-school perennial!

Industry Reviews

"Rarely has the golden rule been so effectively interpreted for children."--Booklist, ALA "If all teachers looked as goofy as Mr. Marshall makes these two, the earth would never again have a truancy problem."--The New York Times

Great For Teachers


I have used this book multiple times as a relief teacher. The students love it and so do I :)

An Oldie but a Goodie


Primary School children find this story hilarious. The children in the story learn a valuable lesson about not appreciating what you have when their sweet teacher goes missing and is replaced by Miss Viola Swamp the meanest substitute teacher on the planet. The ending is a wonderful surprise.
