In "The Bailey School Kids: Bogeymen Don't Play Football," our grade-school heroes come face-to-face with a most unusual student teacher, Mr. Bogey. Their regular class leader, Mrs. Jeepers (who the kids have long suspected of being a vampire), soon turns control of the class over to her new assistant. Mr. Bogey is an intimidating professional football player who is determined to keep the kids on task. Each time the gang doesn't do their homework, their sleep is disturbed by mysterious noises coming from under their beds. Considering their past experience with the mysterious Mrs. Jeepers, Mr. Bogey's football nickname "Bogeyman," his threats to "get" the students who fail to do their work, and the nighttime disturbances, the kids quickly come to the conclusion that Mr. Bogey is in fact the bogeyman.

This book, like all "Bailey School Kids" stories, is a light and fun read for kids aged seven to nine. There are no big life lessons to be found here. Still, the kids are entertaining, and the idea of a vampire teacher working with a constantly-changing cast of supernatural colleagues is sure to appeal to any young grade-schooler.

This book is about a group of kids who discover that their substitute teacher is not only a football player for the town team but the bogeyman. While there real teacher {who they think is a vampire} is sick they, they have a very strange sub teacher.
He is tall with large muscle and always wears dark clothes. When a certain kid doesn't do his homework the teacher says he will get him and that night the boy couldn't sleep because there was a strange noise under his bed. His friends thought nothing of it until kids all over the school were scared to sleep. They went to a football game and snuck into the locker room to snoop through the teacher's locker. When they discover his secret he disappears and the regular teacher comes back to school.
