I loved the book it was in excellent shape. however it took so long to get it that my book study in my class was already over and I no longer was in need of the book. I will put the book in my library with the rest of the books
from the book study for the next time I use this study.

My 8 year old loved this book. He didn't even pick up his game boy until he had read the whole thing! The silly titles in this series lure him in, and the storylines hook him.

The adventures of the Bailey school kids

Well, Eddy, Howie, Liza and Melody were talking with Howie. Howie suggested how their summer could be more exciting. Then his friends talk about how the summer has been so hot and boring. So when Howie tells his friends about going to a cave to explore it, they do not agree to go with him. He convinces them to go with him. They all get to the cave and walk in. They eventually run into Gordon. Gordon is a guide and a friend of Mrs. Jeepers. They also see Mrs. Jeepers there. They see Mrs. Jeepers actually before they see Gordon. Mrs. Jeepers invites the kids to go in the cave with her. Mrs. Jeepers takes the kids through the cave and through a lot of caverns. Then they all run into Gordon in the cave at a certain point. Then Mrs. Jeepers gives the kids to Gordon to take them around in the cave, while Mrs. Jeepers is going through the cave through trap doors. Gordon takes the kids into the cave a ways more and meets up with Mrs. Jeepers. Then Mrs. Jeepers and Gordon lead them through the cave and caverns. Mrs. Jeepers told the kids what cavern names are what. There is one cavern called the cavern of Death. Then at that moment, Mrs. Jeepers slips through a passage way and Eddie and Liza and also Howie saw her. They followed her through it. The passage way takes them to death cavern. On the ceiling there were a lot of bats. The bats were darting for Eddie. When Mrs. Jeepers came in the bats became quiet. Then Mrs. Jeepers brought the kids even further in the cave. Then after that Mrs. Jeepers and Gordon were talking. After all this happened Mrs. Jeepers lead everyone out of the cave. The End.
