This book is about a group of students who were very disrespectful in class. One day they find out that they dear Miss Nelson is missing, and in replace of her was mean Miss Viola Swamp. The quest is on! Where is Miss Nelson? This books covers a lot of themes that teachers can relate to in the classroom such as, manners, respect, and classroom conduct.

This book is about a class who didn't appreciate the nice and sweet teacher they had. When the teacher goes "missing" they are stuck with the meanest substitute ever. This book focuses on appreciate others and don't try and take advantage of them. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0395401461, Paperback)

The kids in Room 207 were misbehaving again. Spitballs stuck to the ceiling.  Paper planes whizzing through the air. They were the worst-behaved class in the whole school.
So begins this quirky classic, first published in 1977 and still relevant today as a lighthearted reminder to show our appreciation to those we value. The students don’t proffer a shred of respect for their good-natured teacher Miss Nelson, but when the witchy substitute Miss Viola Swamp appears on the scene, they start to regret their own wicked ways. James Marshall’s scritchy, cartoonish full-color ink and wash illustrations are hilarious. A back-to-school perennial!
