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!
This was the first book that I read other than picture books at the time . It got me hooked on reading since that day I have always had a book on the go.
The entire series I remember being very entertaining and I always wanted to read another. It is a great way to introduce a different type of book to children. I would highly recommend this to any parent trying to get their child to read. It posed enough of a challenge at the time to still be a valuable learning tool with reading. Great book for kids ! Amazing series !
