Zack is sure second grade will be boring, but that's before he meets his intriguing new teacher. Miss Smith has a knack for telling tales. When she reads from her incredible book, the stories literally spring to life. 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 story-book 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
