Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Gr 2-4-This third installment in the series is filled with fun and misadventure. Poor Andy! His mother is expecting a baby, his foster sister, Tamika, is homesick for her family, and he keeps finding himself in trouble at school. When his strict teacher falls ill, Andy's class plans on taking advantage of the substitute. This, however, only leads to more trouble for Andy, who keeps getting blamed for things he didn't do. The perspective of fourth graders is perfectly captured, as is their angst. In the end, the boy learns that teachers aren't always as bad as they seem. Hillenbrand's black-and-white illustrations show a likable Andy in some of the unpleasant, though often funny situations in which he finds himself. A good choice for reluctant readers and those looking for easy, entertaining chapter books.-Christy Norris Blanchette, Valley Cottage Library, NY Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
