Miss Nelson is Missing!

by Harry Allard and James Marshall

The kids in Room 207 were misbehaving again. Spitballs stuck to the ceiling. Paper planes whizzing through the air.

They were the worst-behaved class in the whole school.

So begins this quirky classic, first published in 1977 and still relevant today as a lighthearted reminder to show our appreciation to those we value.

The students don't proffer a shred of respect for their good-natured teacher Miss Nelson, but when the witchy substitute Miss Viola Swamp appears on the scene, they start to regret their own wicked ways.

James Marshall's scritchy, cartoonish full-color ink and wash illustrations are hilarious. A back-to-school perennial!

Images and image descriptions available.
