Well, Bailey Elementary had no idea what they were in for. Their new teacher is a tall, red-haired woman with "eyes the color of lime Kool-Aid". She's also Transylvanian and an absolutely no-nonsense sort of teacher. Most students are immediately intimidated by her thick accent and piercing stare, and almost immediately all students calm down and become the sort of dream students most teachers wish for.
Almost all, that is. Let us not forget about Eddie, who is determined to make sure that the room is run according to HIS adjenda, not hers. At least that's his plan. Of course, Ms. Jeepers has her OWN ideas of how a class should be run.
Suffice it to say that strange and sometimes creepy things begin to happen in class. All the wonderful tricks Eddie tries to play just somehow *don't work*, and there's no good reason why not. Indeed, sometimes tricks that should work perfectly well suddenly defy all laws of physics and logic--like things thrown suddenly changing direction and flying *back* at the thrower-- and, what's more, only when Ms. J is rubbing that strange, glowing brooch she always wears...
As of this writing, there's over 30 Bailey School Kids books, each with a "Don't" title, like "Ghosts Don't Eat Potato Chips" and "Werewolves Don't Go to Summer Camp".Read more ›
My favorite book in the series is Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots by Debbie Dadey. Debbie Dadey wrote a lot of books in the series. The book is about this 3rd grade class that is very naughty to their old teacher, so they got a new teacher Mrs. Jeepers. All the kids thought Mrs. Jeepers was a vampire. Eddie, the class bully, did a lot of disgusting things for Mrs. Jeepers to quit.
Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots is very relaxing to read! You will like the book because there are a lot of mysteries in the book and the kids are always lying that they are not scared of Mrs. Jeepers.
One reason I think Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots is very nice to read, is because at the end of every Chapter there is a mystery. Whenever my teacher reads the book and she stops at the end of the Chapter, I get very sad to know what was going to happen next. It's very exciting for kids like me.
The final reason Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots is nice to read, is because of the character Eddie. He is the class bully. He does a lot of disgusting things. One example where Eddie was disgusting was when he blew a bubble when he was not supposed to. I think this book is good for 3rd and 4th graders!

The third grade at Bailey Elementary is the hardest class to control, especially Eddie, who is the class trouble- maker. Most of the teachers who had this class left Bailey Elementary because of all of Eddie's pranks. The new teacher, Mrs. Jeepers is different, though. She won't quit no matter what Eddie does. Each day Mrs. Jeepers wears a brooch that kept getting greener and greener as Eddie does something bad. Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots is about how Mrs. Jeepers takes control of the third grade, but the kids begin to wonder about her.
I think the authors wrote this book to make people laugh. Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots is a very funny, entertaining book. I read the book and laughed.
I really liked this book because of the interesting way it was written. There are all kinds of clues and mysterious events that make you want to figure out the solution. I thought it was clever how the authors used details and events to make the teacher look like a vampire. In a way the classroom and kids seemed like they could be real, but the authors also included parts that were fun and imaginary.
I would recommend this book because you can have fun reading it. I think first to third grade kids would enjoy this book.
