Miss Nelson has the worst class in history because they throw paper, spitballs, and just do not listen to her. She gets frustrated. What can she do? You will have to read the book to find out what happens.

I think the authors were trying to tell us to listen to teachers. Kids should not make their teachers mad because you never know what they might do. In my opinion the book would have been better if the pictures were more colorful. The other thing that was irritating to me was the way the book ended. I donít like spacey people like the ones in the book that keep throwing stuff all the time.

I recommend this book to primary to high school students. I think they would like this book a lot. Just because I did not like it does not mean that someone else wonít like it. I have different tastes than everyone else.
