About the Author

Dan Gutman has always been a baseball fanatic. He played in Little League as a kid, and one of the first magazine articles he ever sold explained the science behind the spitball, the scuffball, and corked bats. When he thought about the T206 Honus Wagner—the most valuable baseball card in the world—he began to write honus & me, his first Baseball Card Adventure.

Dan is also the author of the New York Times bestselling Genius Files series, as well as the internationally bestselling My Weird School series.



Jim Paillot lives in Arizona (another weird place) with his weird wife and two weird children. Isn't that weird?

More About the Author

This is hard. I'm a pretty regular Jersey guy who spent fifteen years trying to write newspaper articles, magazine articles, screenplays, books for adults, and just about everything else before I discovered the one thing I'm good at--writing fiction for kids. I aim for kids who DON'T like to read, and hopefully the kids who DO like to read will enjoy my stuff too. For all the gory details about me, check out my web site.

Miss Holly is Too Jolly is a great book to read because it's funny and fun to read. The book is about a Spanish teacher that loves Christmas. She will make boys kiss girls if they are next to each other in class. So the boys stay with the boys and the girls with the girl because they do not want to kiss each other. Also Miss Holly will even make a play about all about Christmas, Hannakah and the other holidays in winter. Miss Holly will put silly costumes on the children every time that Christmas comes like Santa or reindeer, and some people get dressed up like a present. So if you like funny stories you will like this wonderful book.

Miss Holly is one weird teacher. For one, she teaches languages in what is called a language lab, yet there are no mad scientists hanging about. Two, she's constantly wearing a bowl of fruit on her head and dancing around in a very strange, and embarrassing fashion. And three, she's decided to hang mistletoe about all over her classroom, which must mean that she wants all of the boys and girls to kiss. A.J. isn't having it. After all, there's no rule that says you have to kiss underneath the mistletoe, it's just there if you want to kiss someone underneath it. But Andrea refuses to take that into consideration, and, being a stickler for rules, feels that everyone must kiss underneath the mistletoe - even reluctant students. Luckily, when the class learns that there will be a Secret Santa present giveaway, thoughts about mistletoe go out the window, and suddenly everyone's scrambling to find the perfect gift for their Secret Santa, otherwise they'll be present-less on Secret Santa day. But when they discover that they also have to put on a holiday recital, the Weird School kids decide that Miss Holly is taking the holidays way too far, and acting much too jolly for her own good.

I have never read one of the books in the MY WEIRD SCHOOL series before. However, I was pleasantly surprised by Dan Gutman's holiday offering. MISS HOLLY IS TOO JOLLY! vaguely reminds me of THE BAILEY SCHOOL KIDS series, dredging up some crazy teachers to run amok, and leave the school virtually in the hands of a bunch of childish, immature, yet extremely likable, children. Miss Holly is an entertaining character who is sure to leave young readers laughing.

My kids (1st and 2nd graders) love this series and we usually read it together, though they are starting to read it on their own as well.

I am writing this review specifically for THIS book because there is a reference in here I find very alarming, and if parents have good readers they may not be reading all the content their children are reading. I also didn't see anybody else mention it, and thought parents/grandparents/guardians/teachers should know. Just to be clear, I am ok with the words "dumb" and "stupid" and my kids understand that is not how they should treat their peers, and they also understand it's "kids humor".

However, I happened to be reading ahead and saw a reference to the movie "Terminator 2". This is a Rated R movie! Why would the author reference a Rated R movie in a book about 2nd graders and geared towards young readers? The page shows a TV set with a (caricature) drawing of Arnold Schwarzenegger holding a smoking gun with the words "Hasta la vista, baby!".

The copy (in A.J.'s voice explaining to his Spanish teacher) "I told her I already know how to speak Spanish because I saw this movie called Terminator II where Arnold Schwarzenegger kills a bunch of guys, and before he leaves he says, 'Hasta la vista, baby!'. My mom told me that means 'until we meet again.' It was a cool movie."

This is not something I want to stop and explain to my kids in the middle of what should be a fun and enjoyable holiday read. Making light of violence and guns seems very inappropriate. If you agree, then you should be aware this is in here - especially if you aren't reading everything your children are.

I hope you find this helpful.

My daughter's 2nd grade teacher started her on this series. It is fun reading. Chapters are not long and the level of reading is perfect for 2nd grade. I plan on purchasing the whole series. My DD and I love to read the books together and chat about it.

Getting my avid read to convert to chapter books was a breeze with this series. She absolutely loves all of these books and re-reads them often.
