Children's LiteratureMrs. Daisy and Mr. Klutz are back in school with the new librarian, Mrs. Roopy. AJ, an elementary school student, thinks Mrs. Roopy is crazy. He also hates to read, and would much rather spend his time riding his trick bike. He and his classmates decide to prove Mrs. Roopy's craziness after she disguises herself as characters in her library books and George Washington, Johnny Appleseed, Neil Armstrong, and various Mother Goose characters visit AJ and his friends on the playground and in the library. Since Mrs. Roopy assures the students that she was sick at home when these characters have appeared, they have trouble proving that she is actually dressing up. A tatoo on her tummy is the proof they need. When Mrs. Roopy appears in the classroom as a trick biker, the tatoo is revealed. AJ learns that reading is not as boring as he had though. The black and white illustrations are sure to captivate school children as they read Dan Gutman's third book in the "My Weird School" series. 2004, Harper Trophy/Harper Collins Publishers Inc, Ages 7 to 10.
