Do you think your teacher is a vampire? In this story, some kids who had a teacher that was mean started to be mean back to her. The next day, the principal came in and hired a new teacher. Her name was Mrs. Jeepers. The kids thought she was a vampire because they heard her talk because she sounded like a vampire. They also thought that the teacher came from Romania and they got scared. Then strange things started to happen.

I think that the book is very interesting because the kids think that Mrs. Jeepers is a vampire. I recommend this book to other children because it is very exciting. A lot of funny things happen like when they had their other teacher, Mrs. Deedee, the kids put shaving cream in her desk drawer. It makes you want to turn the pages to read more. I think the illustrations are good because they have a lot of details.
