Denis Roche makes her SP debut as both author and artist with her bright, funny story about a teacherless classroom of children who find themselves a wonderful and inventive new teacher.

It's class picture day, and Class 202 is in an uproar. There's chaos everywhere. And worst of all, the class has no permanent teacher. Olivia is so upset that she can't smile. But Mr. Click, the photographer, knows just what to do . He has them make a list of funny words to coax a grin out of Olivia. Olivia's smile gets wider as the words get funnier. Even the principal is impressed when she sees what Mr. Click does with the unruly class. But it's Olivia's suggestion that Mr. Click become their teacher that makes everyone's smile widest of all. It's the best class picture day --ever!
