Wilson and Miss Lovely: A Back-to-School Mystery
by John Stadler
Ages 4-8 32 pages Robin Corey Books June 2009 Hardcover    

Not since Miss Nelson went missing from her classroom have we had a childrenís book this delightful.

Wilson thinks that his teacher, Miss Lovely, is the best teacher there ever was. After the first week of school, he is sure that nothing could be better than having another day with Miss Lovely. So, on the very next day, Wilson is up bright and early and ready for breakfast so he can be on time for school. Oddly, no one else in his house is up preparing for his day at school.

Wilson dresses himself for school, makes his own breakfast and heads out to meet the bus. Meanwhile, just under the flap of each double spread, something green and scary is on the move, getting closer and closer to Wilson.

When Wilson reaches the bus stop, there is no bus and he is forced to run all the way to school. When he reaches the school building, there is no one there, either. No one in the cafeteria, no one in the hallway, no one in the classroom until a large, green creature appears from nowhere and calls Wilsonís name.

The simple drawings and pastel colors add a primary touch to this character, portrayed as a young bunny. This delightful story is a great read aloud for the younger set and will be enjoyed by elementary students reading on their own.
