Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Miss Nelson goes away for a week, and the kids in Room 207 fear that they'll have the dreaded substitute teacher, Viola Swamp. Instead, they get Principal Blandsworth, who bores them into taking drastic measures. ``A nutty sequel to Miss Nelson Is Missing,'' PW stated. ``Marshall's color cartoons and the twisty tale rise to stratospheric heights of buffoonery.'' (48)
Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
Allard gives the reader a well-rounded teacher-character as mischievous as her students. Miss Nelson, with her warmth, insight, and sense of humor, is a welcome change from the usual, more one-sided portrayals of the teacher. During her absence from school, Miss Nelson's class hatches a clever plot allowing them to act out their "playing hooky" fantasies. But in the midst of their fun, the dread substitute, Miss Viola Swamp, descends upon them, wielding authority with a heavy hand. Miss Nelson is greeted exuberantly upon her return-but what has become of Miss Swamp? Marshall's cartoon-like illustrations perfectly complement the zany tone of the story.

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.

    Miss Nelson Is Back is a great book!

    This book is about Miss Nelson having to take a few day off. Their principel came to sub for them. He was very boring. They had no fun. I like this book because the kids dresses up looking like Miss Nelson.
