This book shows that sometimes you need a little extra incentive/fear to get people motivated. I love the way almost all the children are drawn as generic children, but the adults in the book have exaggerated features that really fill in their perosnalities. ( )

I picked this book because I had always really enjoyed Miss Nelson books when I was growing up. For this book, I would have students write who they think Coach Swamp was. ( )
