A wild and funny celebration of individuality!

Eleven-year-old Simon is mortified to discover that his eccentric Aunt Mattie -- with her mismatched shoes, huge flowered hat, and incorrigibly rude parrot, Runcible (whose favorite phrase is "Shut up, please!) -- is the new substitute teacher for his fifth-grade class. Before long Aunt Mattie turns the whole school on its ear with her irreverent ways and teaches Simon's class of "misfits" that they're smarter than they think they are! Who else could have created the prize-winning Mighty Muculent Egg-Breaking and Breakfast-Making Morning-Waking Machine?

Dozens of witty illustrations add to the fun in this hilarious sequel to No More Nice. Here's a book that will have young readers looking at school -- and themselves -- in a whole new way.
