Synopses & Reviews
Every day in Mr. Wolf's class is an adventure... even when you have to stay home from school
Mr. Wolf's students are having a "writer's workshop" and are learning about personal narratives. Sampson doesn't think anything worth writing about has ever happened to him. But when he and Margot go for a bike ride one morning, he has an accident that gives him a new perspective, and he thanks his lucky stars that he's going to be okay. Meanwhile, Penny gives treats to the rats at school so that they'll leave gifts for her, and Stewart and Oliver try to learn how to get along at recess.
Praise for the Mr. Wolf's Class series:
"Young readers should easily self-identify with fifth-grade teacher Steinke's varied and sharply observed characters and wryly perceived classroom minutiae... This class gets an A." Kirkus Reviews (Starred Review)
"Upbeat... the beginning of a promising new series." The New York Times Book Review
"With basic dialogue, a soothing setting, and no more than six frames per page, this book is ideal for new chapter book readers and older struggling readers." School Library Journal
"With calm intelligence and amusing, accessible realism, Steinke creates a cast in which any young reader will immediately find someone to embrace and a world that's invitingly recognizable." Booklist
"The cheerful plot depicts each character with care and depth." The Horn Book
"One of the most inspiring and comforting books of the year." The Beat
"I loved spending time in Mr. Wolf's Class! Aron Nels Steinke's debut is a perfect introduction to graphic novels for elementary school readers, who will laugh and empathize with Mr. Wolf's diverse group of students." Kate Messner, author of the Ranger in Time series and former schoolteacher
"Mr. Wolf's Class has something for everyone!" Gene Luen Yang, creator of American Born Chinese and former schoolteacher
