"This entertaining and instructive story is a good choice for early elementary students, and young English-language learners." – School Library Journal

"Step aside Ms. Frizzle. The pink-haired Ms. Spell has spelling to teach!" – Kirkus


An unorthodox teacher gives one of the most unforgettable spelling lessons ever in this zany adventure with eye-popping wonders as well as excellent spelling advice.

Poof! There is magic in the air, and readers will need to prepare themselves for some outlandish surprises especially when Ms. Spell waves her wand to demonstrate the marvels of good grammar. The spelling review gets a bit out of control when a giant chocolate cake, zombie monkeys with laser-shooting eyes and the irate school principal get involved.

Filled with pointers on remembering commonly misspelled words, this rollicking picture book uses comic book format to make spelling less threating and more fun.

Ages 5-8
