On Order



All the kids from Room 2B are on fire to get their first glimpse of the school's mysterious new teacher, Mr. Skooghammer. With a name like that and a job as the head of the Dungeon (a.k.a. the Suspension Room), it's no wonder everyone's interested in Mr. Skooghammer--and even more interested to see whether or not Harry will become his first prisoner.

Booklist Review

Gr. 2^-3. The delicate and the gross work together nicely in Miss Mackle's 2B classroom, where butterflies hatch in a giant net cage and where Horrible Harry sees himself as the tough guy in a melodrama. There's a new discipline teacher with an earring in his EYEBROW: Will he punish Harry in the "dungeon" room in the basement? Fans of Song Lee, Harry, and Doug will enjoy the latest simple chapter book about school matters that loom large and surprise you. --Hazel Rochman
