Dunderheads, unite! A tyrannical teacher gets her just due in a delightfully subversive, outrageously funny tale by Newbery Medal winner Paul Fleischman.

Miss Breakbone hates kids. Especially the time-squandering, mindwandering, doodling, dozing dunderheads in her class. But when she confiscates Junkyards crucial find, she finally goes too far. Enter Wheels (and his souped-up bike with forty-eight extra gears), Pencil (who can draw anything from memory), Spider (look up and youll find him), and their fellow misfits in a spectacular display of teamwork aimed at teaching Miss Breakbone a lesson she wont soon forget. From the incomparable Paul Fleischman comes a winning cast of underdogs and one of the most terrifying teachers youll ever meet brought to vivid life in David Robertss quirky, hilarious illustrations.
