NEW STUDENT GETS OLD TEACHER

The bad news is that Cara Landry is the new kid at Denton Elementary School. The worse news is that her teacher, Mr. Larson, would rather read the paper and drink coffee than teach his students anything. So Cara decides to give Mr. Larson something else to read — her own newspaper, The Landry News.

Before she knows it, the whole fifth-grade class is in on the project. But then the principal finds a copy of The Landry News, with unexpected results. Tomorrow's headline: Will Cara's newspaper cost Mr. Larson his job?

Review:

"As in Frindle, author Andrew Clements uses an everyday classroom setting to illuminate words and their importance. Using clear and simple sentence structure, hard issues such as divorce, loyalty, and responsibility are presented with sensitivity and a lot of humor....This is an enjoyable story that also provides a great deal of information on some important and current issues." School Library Journal

Review:

"The depth of characterization, humor, realistic dialogue, and drama will engage readers....Sure to stimulate classroom discussion, the novel offers students and teachers well-rounded perspectives and lessons on reconciling appearances with the real story — in the media as well as in private lives." Shelle Rosenfeld, Booklist

Review:

"...[J]ust the book for refreshing summer fun....[T]his story is about...good writing, good truth-telling, and good motives....The book just might introduce young readers to their local [news]papers." Karen Carden, The Christian Science Monitor

Synopsis:

Cara Landry has the worst teacher in the school, and tells everyone about Mr. Larson in her own fifth-grade classroom newspaper, "The Landry News". When the principal gets wind of the article and wants Mr. Larson fired, a town-wide debate on the First Amendment is sparked. B&W illustrations.
