From the Book Jacket: The football team hasn't won a game all year. They haven't even scored a single point. They practice only when they feel like it, and neither Principal Blandsworth's admonition nor Coach Armstrong's heart-rending sobs spur them on. Something has to be done. On a certain day when no one wants to practice, the coach's whistle blows, and the team cannot believe what they see: It's that substitute teacher from times past, the terrible tyrant from Miss Nelson's Room 207. The team knows they're in for it when she shouts for all to hear, "I am Coach Swamp." The surprise twist to Miss Swamp's outrageous and rollicking story will delight and mystify the multitude of fans that Harry Allard and James Marshall have won with Miss Nelson Is Missing! and Miss Nelson Is Back. Harry Allard and James Marshall have teamed up before to create the wonderful adventures of the Stupid family in The Stupids Step Out, The Stupids Have a Ball, and The Stupids Die. And, of course, they are the creators of the famous Miss Nelson Is Missing!, which has won the Arizona Young Readers Award, the Georgia Children's Picture Storybook Award, and the California Young Reader Medal. Miss Nelson Is Back, the rollicking sequel, is a featured selection on the PBS television series "Reading Rainbow." Other books about Miss Nelson are available from Bookshare.
From the Book Jacket When the high-spirited kids in Room 207 learn that Miss Nelson is to be away for several days, they begin to make plans. What better time to act up and be wild? They change their tune, however, when they hear all about the terrible Miss Viola Swamp-"the meanest substitute in the whole wide world." "Oooh," they say. Naturally, when Mr. Blandsworth, the school principal, decides to take over for Miss Nelson, the kids in 207 are relieved. No Miss Swamp to worry about. But when relief turns to groaning boredom, they hatch a clever plot-not unlike something Miss Nelson herself might dream up. In this delightful comedy of disguise and surprise, Allard and Marshall pay a return visit to Room 207. There's nothing quite like Miss Nelson and her class-or is there? And what about the famous Miss Swamp? Oh, she's around. Harry Allard and James Marshall have teamed up before to create the wonderful adventures of the Stupid family in The Stupids Step Out, The Stupids Have a Ball, and The Stupids Die. And, of course, they are the creators of the famous Miss Nelson Is Missing!, which has won the Arizona Young Readers Award, the Georgia Children's Picture Storybook Award and most recently, the California Young Reader Medal Award.

Miss Nelson was the nicest teacher in the school. She never yelled and she gave the easiest assignments. She was always smiling and cheery, even when her students act up in class or would not open their arithmetic books nor pay attention during story hour. Until one day Miss Nelson did not come to school. A substitute teacher came instead. What an opportunity for everyone to be even more naughty. Not so! Miss Swamp immediately laid down the law - no talking, no goofing off in class- and she gave every student loads of homework. Where was Miss Nelson ? Where was the wonderful unappreciated Miss Nelson? And so the students hunted for her high and low, with the dubious help of Detective McSmogg. Harry Allard and James Marshall, with their incisive feel for the nuances of relationships, point out with imagination and humor the folly of being inconsiderate or unappreciative.
Cuando la Señorita Nelson desaparece viene una nueva sustituta mucho más estricta a la clase. When Miss Nelson disappears, the children are faced with a very strict substitute.
