Clementine can't believe her ears..."her beloved teacher, Mr. D'Matz, might be leaving them for the rest of the year to go on a research trip to Egypt! No other teacher has ever understood her impulsiveness, her itch to draw constantly, or her need to play "Beat the Clock" when the day feels too long. And in his place, he's left a substitute with a whole new set of rules that Clementine just can't figure out. The only solution, she decides, is to hatch a plan to get Mr. D'Matz back. If it means ruining her teacher's once-in-a-lifetime chance well, it's worth it. Isn't it?
"Pennypacker and Frazee have this latter-day Ramona down to a T....The great success of this outing...lies in the warmth of the relationship between Clementine and Teacher." Kirkus Reviews
