Marvelous Middle Grade Monday: THE DUNDERHEADS by Paul Fleischman

I adore this book. And while it’s home is in the “easy fiction” (picture book) section of my library, it’s the older kids it resonates with. The kids who have had an encounter or two with a grown-up who is just plain . . . mean. And scary.

That’s Miss Breakbone, their teacher. A teacher so awful she keeps an electric chair in her classroom. But when she confiscates something unfairly–well, the power of the dunderheads is unleashed.

Look! A sequel! Can’t wait.
