In this latest picture book by Michael Garland, action-packed artwork showcases a tale of high adventure inspired by the magic of reading and one spectacular teacher.

Zack can't wait for Mrs. Smith to read out loud again from her incredible book. The first story fills the classroom with dueling pirates and the sound of their clashing swords. The second story transports Zack's class to the shady forest of the Big Bad Wolf. At the end of each spellbinding tale the characters slip quietly back into the book.

But one day Mrs. Smith is late for school, and the principal takes charge. When he runs away in terror from a fire-breathing dragon, Zack and his classmates set free the rest of the storybook characters and have a morning of high-spirited fun . . . until they notice that the pirates have hoisted their Jolly Roger on the roof of the school!

My 4.5yr old daughter and 7yr old son both love this book and the other "Miss Smith's" books.
In the book a boy finds school to be something new and interesting when his teacher begins reading aloud from a magical book. The characters come out of the book with each story. Classic stories are mentioned. The teacher looks young and "hip." The principal who reads the characters out runs away to get help. The children take over reading the book -- reading more and more characters out of the book without reading them back into the story. The main character tries to get people to finish the stories so that the characters will go back into the book, but the kids don't listen. Finally Miss Smith returns and brings the classroom back to order.
