This book is about Pearl having fears and anxiety about her new teacher after the summer break. The book begins with Pearl's class visiting Mr. Hat's class who will becoming up to Mrs. Star's room after the break and soon wondering who will be her future teacher. On their way to Mr. Hat's class Pearl sneaks into Ms. Bean (her future teacher) and thinks that she is a mean teacher. For the rest of the week, she worries and begs Ms. Star to stay with her the following year until a teacher baseball team convinces Pearl that her new teacher will be great. This is an excellent book for any young student about to move to a new grade and feeling a little nervous. The size and amount of text is perfect for a beginner reader transitioning into novels and the illustrations provide additional details to the text as well as fun to look at while reading. I also enjoyed the quick knock knock joke done at the beginning of the book. Based on other books by this author in the series, a joke is always included. ( )

Pearl dreads leaving her favorite teacher in the latest addition to the Geisel Honor-winning series

Pearl and Wagner have only five days left in the school year with their awesome teacher, Ms. Star. And when Pearl catches a glimpse of next year's teacher, Ms. Bean, she looks mean. Pearl imagines they're in for a year of taking spelling tests with super-hard words, doing one hundred jumping jacks every morning, and counting backward--by sevens! Pearl announces she's going to stay in Ms. Star's class forever. But is Ms. Bean as bad as she seems?

Perfect for beginning readers, the fifth book in the charming Pearl and Wagner series shows that first impressions aren't always right.

Even though summer vacation starts in five days, Pearl and Wagner, a rabbit and a mouse who are best friends, worry about next year's teacher, mean Ms. Bean.
