NO MORE NASTY
New York : Farrar, Straus,
IL 3-6, RL 5.1
is mortified when his eccentric great-aunt Mathilda Maxwell becomes the
substitute teacher for his fifth grade class, a class with the reputation
for "sinking subs" and never winning a math bee or science fair.
But Aunt Mattie is not your average substitute. She takes attendance
by asking all those present to raise their hands and all those not present
to raise their hands. She teaches the principles of electricity by
disconnecting the annoying PA system. She wears pencils in her hair
and non matching shoes on her feet. What she doesn't do is reveal
her relationship with Simon, a secret Simon never wants his classmates
to find out. Aunt Mattie also has a way with words. Before
they know it, she's turning this nefarious group of miscreants into proficuous
whiffits. Does Aunt Mattie survive fifth grade? Will fifth
grade survive Aunt Mattie? Read No More Nasty by Amy MacDonald.
