Overview


A Spanish-language edition of the very popular Harry Allard-James Marshall collaboration about Room 207's missing schoolteacher. Miss Nelson is the nicest teacher in the whole school. She never yells, and she gives the easiest assignments. Then one day Miss Nelson is not at school. There is a substitute, Miss Viola Swamp, who immediately lays down the law - no talking, no goofing off in class - and gives lots of homework. Where is the wonderful, unappreciated Miss Nelson? Is she ever coming back? Allard and Marshall, with their incisive feel for the nuances of relationships, point out with imagination and much humor the folly of being inconsiderate and unappreciative.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble Staff
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.

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.
