Reviews

"A storyteller with an uncanny sense of elementary school humor, Harley has penned a worthy sequel to Charlie Bumpers vs. The Teacher of the Year (2013). With illustrator Gustavson, he captures the frustration that comes with just having to make the best of a bad situation."
"Strong characters, a fast-moving plot, and amusing black-and-white spot illustrations continue the fun in this second installment."
"A heartwarming and sometimes laugh-out-loud tale about giving 100 percent even when you're less than thrilled to do so... [L]isteners will be eager to find out how his adventure unfolds."
