Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is an artful spoof that's not to be missed." Booklist, ALA
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.
