I liked this book for a few reasons. The plot, the characters, and the language represented in the story kept you reading for more. The Bailey School kids believe their student teacher is the bogeyman. Does the bogeyman really exist in Bailey City? First, the plot kept you turning the page because it was full of suspense. Could their student teacher really be the bogeyman? You have to keep reading to find out. Secondly, the characters in the story were very well thought out. They are third grade students who all have unique personalities. They range from the boy who never does his homework to the girl who is afraid of her own shadow. "Eddie shook his finger in front of Howie's nose. "How many times do i have to tell you," he said. "Thinking is dangerous!". Lastly, the language in the story was so descriptive I could easily visualize what is being said. "His shoulders were as wide as three school desks pushed together, and his neck was so huge his shirt wouldn't button." The book is a worthwhile read! ( )

A silly series that creates more questions than it answers. It's great for formulating theories as well as predictions. The class dynamics should be very familiar to those of the Magic School Bus generation.

"what does Mr. Bogey have to do with cookies and a football under Huey's bed?" Melody asked
