Miss Nelson Is Backby Harry G. Allard Jr., James Marshall
When their teacher has to go away for a week, the kids in Room 207 plan to "really act up." "This is an artful spoof that's not to be missed." -- Booklist
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's WeeklyMiss 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 QuattlebaumAllard 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.

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.
This one is a riot! If you and your second grader want to laugh, get it!
