Ever since starting grade four, Robin's days at Ernest Lee Elementary School have been dreary. At the center of this unhappiness is her teacher, Ms. Beetroot, whose stern looks and endless lists of rules leave no room for fun. All this changes when Robin and her class are greeted by a wild and wonderful substitute teacher.

"Welcome, children! My name is Mr. Cunningham. That's cunning as in sly, and ham as in joking around. I will be your substitute grade 4 teacher for today. Let the show begin!" He turned, opened the large door, and gave a welcoming bow."

Mr. Cunningham brings excitement and fun back into the grade 4 classroom, but that night Robin must face the inevitable - Beetroot would be back the next day. That is when an impossible crazy idea begins to take shape in Robin's mind. But how will she convince the grade 4 class that this crazy idea will work and how will she keep this impossible idea a secret from Ms. Beetroot?

Sylvia Gunnery is a teacher and writer whose years in the classroom have given her great inspiration for her stories. She has published six novels for teens as well as a book for teachers on writing in the classroom. Sylvia lives at Crescent Beach in Lunenburg County, Nova Scotia.
