In fact, all the grown-ups at A.J.'s school seem to have something wrong with them. What's going on here? What are A.J. and the kids in his class going to do? They've got to bring Miss Daisy up to second-grade level before the end of the year! Never before has school been this mixed up, or this much fun. Popular author Dan Gutman pulls out all the stops for this right-on second-grade hilarity. Oh, by the way, A.J.'s principal, Mr. Klutz, is off the wall too. Be sure to read Mr. Klutz Is Nuts!
