A boy confronts his fear about the first day of school in this humorous tale. After hearing horrifying stories about teachers, the main character dreams about his "monster" teacher Mrs. Green and the terrible things she does to students.

I felt this book was very inappropriate for younger children. For children with healthy imaginations, the subject matter could be too much and very scary. I recommend that parents review this book first before purchasing it, so you can determine if your chid would be scared by it.

when the book finally was delivered, which was promised in 4 days, it took 7 days! so it was a Christmas gift and was not given to recipient. very disappointing on ordering at my local store and then it didn't get delivered when they said it would. i have a membership so was free delivery, but took way too long.

I liked this book because in the story the boy falls asleep and dreams that he has a teacher named Miss Green. What I didn't like about this book is when the teacher Miss Green scrapes her nails across the board. And would I recommend this book to anyone yes I would. Even if they read it already they might still want to read it again. This is why would want to recommend this book to anyone. By MyChesha Wilson

The Teacher From the Black Lagoon is about a little boy and a dog. In school the little boy has a problem. The little boy was having a dream that the teacher was a dino! My favorite part was when the teacher shrunk Penny's head. I would recommend this book to people who like to read about animals. This book is funny. I give it 5 stars.

Easy enough for my first grader to read to me, and funny enough for me to read to my husband, 'The Teacher from the Black Lagoon' explores a young child's insecurities about adjusting to a new teacher, who turns out to be worse than he imagined...or is she really?
