Pearl dreads leaving her favorite teacher in the latest addition to the Geisel Hor-winning series Pearl and Wagner have only five days left in the school year with their awesome teacher, Ms. Star. And when Pearl catches a glimpse of next year's teacher, Ms. Bean, she looks mean. Pearl imagines they're in for a year of taking spelling tests with super-hard words, doing one hundred jumping jacks every morning, and counting backward--by sevens! Pearl anunces she's going to stay in Ms. Star's class forever. But is Ms. Bean as bad as she seems? Perfect for beginning readers, the fifth book in the charming Pearl and Wagner series shows that first impressions aren't always right.
