Bradley unravels the mystery of ”Operation Misteach.”
Bradley doesn’t much like school. And he especially doesn’t like his new teacher, Mrs. Gross. But it isn’t until she tells the class that 6 x 9 = 54 but in the new Upside-Down Math 9 x 6 = 45, and that they no longer need to include the silent ”e” when spelling words like ”come,” ”give,” and ”have,” and that there are seventy states in the United States. He knows something is seriously wrong. Bradley sneaks into the Teacher’s Room and discovers a map of a mysterious Apple Island, where all teachers originally came from. When his class is kidnapped and flown there, Bradley gradually discovers that there was a Squabble and the Good Teachers built an ark, ”Pedagogue I”, and sailed to America where they established schools for children all over the country. Now the Crabby Teachers have arrived with a plan, ”Operation Missteach” to undo all the good teachers have done.
