Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Four previously published books (The Teacher from the Black Lagoon, The Gym Teacher from the Black Lagoon, The Principal from the Black Lagoon and The Librarian from the Black Lagoon) are compiled in this chapter book. They all follow the same pattern. A young boy fears the worst on his first day of school. He dreams that his teacher, Mrs. Green, is a monster of the worst sort. The kind of teacher who gives homework on the first day of school. The kind of teacher/monster that bites children in half to demonstrate fractions. And the kind of teacher who can singe a student with her fiery breath for asking a question. When the young boy wakes up and sees the real Mrs. Green, he is so delighted that he rushes to the front of the classroom to hug her. Children may laugh at the absurdity of our young protagonist's nightmare, as his imaginings get more and more frightful. And they may all breathe a collective sigh of relief when he meets the attractive teacher who has supplanted the monstrous Mrs. Green of his nightmare. The same happens with the gym teacher who turns out to be a regular guy wearing a Penn State T-shirt. The principal is a woman who really wants the best for her students and offers only a mild admonishment. The librarian turns out to be so helpful that our protagonist who is always looking on the dark side of life ends up stating "I'm going to love the library!" Worry warts, doomsayers, pessimists, and those who have a sense of the absurd will also love this collection.
