From Our Editors

The long, hot and carefree days of summer are over, and it’s time for Liza to go back to school. In some ways, Liza really wants to go back to her studies -- if only to chitchat with her schoolmates. But when Liza learns her new teacher is the dreadful Mrs. Rumford, she’s ready to go into hiding. Then, she meets a new school chum who shows her how fun the school year can really be in Barbara Baker’s Third Grade is Terrible.
