She is a young teacher which appeals to young children. All Miss Malarkey books are enjoyable.
[ASIN:0802780849 Miss Malarkey Leaves No Reader Behind Testing Miss MalarkeyMiss Malarkey Doesn't Live in Room 10 (Miss Malarkey)
It all begins when the principal declares at the beginning of the school year that he will dye his hair(piece) purple and sleep on the roof if the students collectively read 1000 books by the end of the year! Miss Malarkey is pumped! She's gotta see that! But even more than purple hair and a wild night on the roof, Miss Malarkey wants all her students to participate in Everybody Reads in America because "reading is about the finest thing a person can do."
The narrator, an unidentified boy with no age given, and his friends HATE to read. It's not that he doesn't like Miss Malarkey--he does--he just doesn't like to read. Then he thought if a book were about aliens, race cars, funny jokes, chewing gum, hot sauce, and cannonballs at the pool, he would be game to read it.
It doesn't take Miss Malarkey (have you caught on to her name yet?--really a misnomer because of her good heart and good intent) long to find books for most of the students who actually--gasp!--love to read. But for our narrator, she finds them, he finds them booorrrrinngg.
Even his friends go on the sly to read so he won't know. When their secret is out, they begin to openly discuss books at Narrator's house, much to his dismay.Read more ›
Many students would identify with the reluctant reader, and teachers with Miss Malarkey's quest to find him the perfect book!
