In a funny story with an outlandish premise (how many people can actually say they've had a teacher stay at their house), Arthur's weekend is seemingly ruined when he finds out his teacher Mr. Ratburn will be spending the weekend at his home. Much to Arthur's surprise, Mr. Ratburn turns out to be normal AND fun! Just when Arthur starts to think things aren't so bad, the kids at school start making fun of him but Mr. Ratburn saves the day. This would be a great read for any "nerdy" kids. It certainly helped me out when I was accused of being a teacher's pet. ( )

Arthur's teacher's roof caves in during the winter and has no where else to go so his parents let Mr. Ratburn stay with them for a few days. Arthur got an A on the last test he took and other students in the class start to call him the teacher's pet. Mr. Ratburn knows this and decides to move out of Arthur's house and in turn starts rotating around to all of the students' homes until his house is fixed.
This is a good fantasy because it is animals acting out human like situations and makes students ask questions about favoritism and equal treatment within the classroom.

Arthur is not so happy about his teacher Mr.Ratburn coming to stay at his house. But soon Arthur learns that his tecaher is not so bad. I think this story is a fun read because most has a had a dream that their teacher showes up unannounced.

Arthur’s social life is briefly turn upside-down when his teacher has to stay with him. The story teaches children that their teachers are people too. We don't live in schools. ( )

Arthur's teacher has to stay with him because his roof collapsed. Arthur learns that teachers are different outside of school. Teachers are people, too; they have feelings and have fun. They aren't here to ruin students' lives (despite popular belief). Their lives, also, don't revolve around school related/educational things. They enjoy cartoons and fun. The kids torture Arthur because he is a "teacher's pet." To solve the problem, Mr. Ratburn arranges to stay at another student's house so that they see what it's really like to live with a teacher. He does this to help them stop making fun of Arthur. ( )
