Synopses & Reviews
"The key elements of this zany story include a teacher who loves country music, Grandma's Baked Goods and Auto Repair Shop, woolly mammoth ghosts, a baby Indian elephant, a recent immigrant from India, and a Vermont setting. . . . With a true understanding of fourth graders, the author creates believable characters. The dialogue is hilarious and reads aloud well." School Library Journal
A sequel to Seven Spiders Spinning, with fake ghosts of hairdressers and real ghosts of mastodons.
