Item description for Miss Nelson Is Missing! by Harry G. Allard & James Marshall...
Overview The kids in Room 207 take advantage of their teacher's good nature until she disappears and they are faced with a vile substitute.
Publishers Description "
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

Reviews - What do customers think about Miss Nelson Is Missing!?
An old favorite Dec 16, 2007
This book was one I remembered my gradeschool teacher reading, so I bought it for my kids. They enjoyed it, but I think it makes a much larger impact when read in a school, to a class of kids. My 4 year old hasn't quite figured it out yet... but my kindergartener did. Solve the mystery and enjoy :)
I am going to be Miss Viola Swamp Sep 22, 2007
I told my second graders that if they don't start behaving that Miss Viola Swamp will be their teacher. They don't know who she is, so I am buying them the book to read ASAP. Hopefully, this will work! Thanks!
Miss Nelson Is Missing! Book & Cassette. Sep 10, 2007
My daughter loved this book with cassette. It was part of her summer reading and she has read it again and again.
Juneau 2nd grader Mar 23, 2007
If you like mysteries you might like the book "Miss Nelson is Missing", by James Marshall. Miss Nelson has a hard time teaching her students. Her students misbehave. When she comes back after being absent they are nice to her because Miss Swamp, the substitute, had been mean to them. Miss Swamp made them do all the work. Do you know who Miss Swamp really is? The kids in room 207 think she's a witch. Can you solve this story?
Beware - Not for Young Children Jul 13, 2006
This book has been read to my child who is 3 years old. Because of this book my chold has not been able to attend daycare for 2 weeks. This book has made him scared of everything. My son has always been very independent and now he won't do anything without someone there with him. Because of this book it has turned our very relaxed independent child into a very scared and paranoid child.
