Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The children in Miss Nelson's class go beyond misbehaving; they are downright terrible! Near her wits' end, Miss Nelson thinks up a brilliant plan. The next day the kids have a substitute--the nasty Viola Swamp--who loads the boys and girls with homework and never gives them a story hour. By the time Miss Nelson finally returns, the children are so grateful they behave well. But now Viola Swamp is missing....
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3This familiar and amusing tale reads just as well in Spanish as it does in English. Class 207 just won't behave. Although Miss Nelson asks her studentsrather sweetlyto be good, they refuse to listen. They'd rather shoot spitballs and fly paper airplanes. Then, one day, a substitute dressed all in black, with a bad hairdo and a scowl to match, is standing before them. It is clear that Ms. Pantano takes no nonsense. Soon, the students are miserable. When Miss Nelson reappears, there is no doubt that she's returned to a calmer, gentler, quieter class. Accept no substitutes; children will love La seorita Nelson.Donna J. Murray, Queens Borough Public Library, NY

Meet the Author


Harry Allard is the author of several hilarious books for children, including three books about Miss Nelson and four books about the Stupid family, all illustrated by James Marshall. He currently lives in Oaxaca, Mexico.


James Marshall (1942–1992) created dozens of exuberant and captivating books for children, including The Stupids, Miss Nelson Is Missing!, and the ever-popular George and Martha books. Before creating his canon of classic, hilarious children’s books, James Marshall played the viola, studied French, and received a master’s degree from Trinity College. He also doodled. It was the doodles, and the unforgettable characters that emerged from them, that led him to his life’s work as one of the finest creators of children’s books of the twentieth century. In 2007, James Marshall was posthumously awarded the Laura Ingalls Wilder medal for his lasting contribution to literature for children.

    Maravillosa!

    Absolutamente lo mejor para cualquier nino edad de escuela primaria. A ellos les encantara. Todos quieren una maestra dulce como Senorita Nelson, y todos tienen miedo de tener una como Senorita Pantano.

    This wonderful story is perfect for any grade school age child who is learning Spanish. A most entertaining way to practice language skills.
