Pearl and Wagner have only five days left in the school year with their awesome teacher, Ms. Star. And when Pearl catches a glimpse of next year's teacher, Ms. Bean, she looks mean. Pearl imagines they're in for a year of taking spelling tests with super-hard words, doing one hundred jumping jacks every morning, and counting backward—by sevens! Pearl announces she's going to stay in Ms. Star's class forever. But is Ms. Bean as bad as she seems?

Perfect for beginning readers, the fifth book in the charming Pearl and Wagner series shows that first impressions aren't always right.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—As the school year comes to a close, Pearl, a rabbit, and Wagner, a mouse, are thinking ahead and curious about Ms. Bean, who will be their teacher in the fall. While walking down the hall, Pearl peers inside Ms. Bean's classroom, and it is quiet—too quiet. Her imagination runs wild as she conjures up horrible things that youngsters might be forced to do in Ms. Bean's class, frightening herself and the others when she tells them. When the teacher and her current class visit with Pearl and Wagner's, bringing snacks from their garden, the children have an opportunity to ask questions. Soon their worries are alleviated. (No, they will not be made to count backward from 100 by sevens.) The pen-and-ink, watercolor, and colored-pencil illustrations feature characters' emotions that are easy to interpret, and they will draw readers in. Children who worry about what the next school year might hold for them will find this book reassuring.—Janene Corbin, Rosebank Elementary School, Nashville, TN
