It is a classic and perfect for dressing up as the main character.
Little ones love the suspense and feel they "knew it" all along.
Clever illustrations abound.
The idea of an evil sub (who, by the end is not so evil after all) is perhaps too much for some kids. The negative stereotype of teachers who "mean business" may not be the most helpful.
Might be no problem for kids who like school and have enough experience to realize that the evil sub is not very likely. But not so much for kids who are younger, shier, or not-so-sure about school.
The lesson presented seems to be that the students learned a lesson about their bad behavior. How they learned that, I don't know. Do you get the evil sub when your classroom behavior is bad? (Seems to me that it would take some good classroom management to bring about the behavior change, but that's not a lesson for kids to learn.)
