Charlie is dreading 4th grade. He has learned that he will have Mrs. Burke and she hates him. He threw a shoe last year that accidentally hit her in the head. Once school starts it does seem like he is right. Charlie is always getting into trouble for some reason and Mrs. Burke is always on his case. But things are not always what they seem.
I thought Charlie was funny and I actually really liked Mrs. Burke. This book is geared towards younger/first chapter book readers even with the 4th grade characters. I think it will definitely find its place, especially with boys.
