Room 207’s kids were misbehaving once more. The ceiling was covered in spittle. Paper planes whizzing along. They were the school’s worst-behaving students. This quirky classic, first published in 1977 and still relevant today as a cheerful reminder to convey our gratitude to people we cherish, opens with these words. When the witchy substitute Miss Viola Swamp arrives on the scene, the kids begin to lament their own wicked ways. The full-color ink and wash illustrations by James Marshall are scritchy and comical. A perennial favourite for back-to-school!
