A comic spell is cast in these stories of a topsy-turvy classroom.
Once again, Douglas Evans, author of The Classroom at the End of the Hall, draws from his years of teaching and employs his characteristic comic wit in these hilarious episodes of education gone awry. Familiar characters like Motormouth Morgan and Richard the Bully, unknowingly under the spell of W.T. Melon, the man whose portrait hangs in the hallway of the school, learn various lessons about school and about life as their normal school routines are turned upside down and inside out. Magical events bring inanimate objects to life —lunchboxes, playground equipment, mealworms, and pencil sharpeners teach their own lessons … not at all by the book. Each of Douglas Evans’s imaginative stories conveys a subtle lesson about the nature of schools, teachers, kids, and learning itself.
