Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Krisan Murphy
Readers may suspect that this chapter book is an excuse to lecture kids about eating healthy and exercise, but there is a surprise twist to the story. Ms. Leakey, the new health teacher, has been hired by the principle of Ella Mentry School, to emphasize healthy eating and exercise. The book is narrated by A. J., who hates school, but is amused by all the unusual activities there. Ms. Freaky produces a play starring teachers dressed as junk food, fruits, and vegetables battling for the students' attention. If that is not strange enough she runs everywhere she goes in the school building doing jumping jacks, arm wrestling Mr. Granite, the Math teacher, and snatching a Twinkie right out of A. J.'s mouth. A. J. becomes Ms. Freaky's special project when she overhears him saying that he loves to eat sweets. She stalks him the grocery store and even has him box a punching bag stuffed full of candy. This twelfth book in the "My Weird School Daze" series will make students groan and laugh when they read the surprise ending which will convince everyone that Mrs. Leakey is not just weird, she is truly freaky. The black and white illustrations are full of action and expression. Reviewer: Krisan Murphy
