This book is about 4 kids who just started gymnastics,but could the gym teacher realy be a whitch. These kids are going to find out. I think this is a wonderful book beacuse it leaves you in suspense as the kids try to figerout the strange things happening in the so called witches house.

In the 10th book in the Bailey School Kids series, the usual gang is on it's way down to the new gym to take gymnastics. Funny thing, though, it's totally black, spiders spin webs all over the place, there's a black cat, a broom that seems to move by itself, and the instructor keeps saying all these strange rhymes, like she's casting a spell or something... She couldn't be a witch, could she??
The Bailey School Kids series is a fast-paced one full of wisecracking 3rd graders who find themselves investigating some of the strangest people in their town (the titles like "Vampires Don't Wear Polka Dots" should clue you in!!). This time, their odd gym instructor says these weird rhymes that seem to somehow come true: a girl who couldn't tumble or do a cartwheel to save her life suddenly is a pro at them. A broom seems to move by itself and there's this giant gingerbread house in the kitchen of the gym... Hmmm... how mysterious!!
Kudos go to the authors for avoiding the stereotypical green-faced, pointed hat witch of the movies and old children's stories. To do so would be insulting to REAL witches and would only make the story goofballish, not the creepy what's-going-on sort of book it is.
Most adults can make their way through a Bailey School Kids book in half an hour or less. Because their so short and fast paced, they're easy books for beginning-to-intermediate readers to sink their teeth into... Metaphorically speaking, of course!!

There was this really cool teacher in the book that was really a witch. And these are the names of all the characters: Eddie, Howie, Melody, Liza, Prince Diamond (a dog), and Ms Brewbaker (the teacher/witch).

Last month I read Witches Don't do backflips which was about four kids who are starting to take gym and what makes this story fun to read is to find out if the gym teacher is a witch.

A Kid's Review on November 29, 2006
Format: Paperback
If you like spooky things then you should read "Witches don't do backflips". This book is in the series "The baily school kids".

I like this series because it has lots of books with adventures,mysteries,

and tall tales. I am totally in love with this series because all it's

books are short and can be read in about an hour. I've been reading

these books since 2cd grade and now in 5th I love these books and

i will read them for the rest of my long life!GO BAILY SCHOOL KIDS!!!!!!! :)

A Kid's Review on May 14, 2007
Format: Paperback
For a Bailey school book, this one is pretty good, but not that good. At least it has someone besides Liza who figures out what the grown up is. Bailey school kids books would be good if they didn't all follow the same pattern. The most frustrating thing about a Bailey School book is that they never give you the climax. One minute they're telling you about how one of the kids is getting cornerd by the grownup, and the next there telling you about the week after that!!!! It is sooo anoying!
