Substitute Creacher

By Chris Gall (Electronic Book, 2014)
Chris Gall's vibrant artwork with dynamic comic book aesthetic will grab both parents and monster-loving kids!

Includes Read Aloud/Read to Me feature where available.

The troublemaking students of Ms. Jenkins' class arrive at school one day to discover a substitute creacher has come to put a stop to their monkey business! He regales them with mind-boggling stories about his former students who didn't follow the rules: Keith the glue-eater, Zach the daydreamer, and Hank the prankster, to name a few. But even this multi-tentacled, yellow-spotted, one-eyed monster's cautionary tales about the consequences of mischief-making can't seem to change the students' wicked ways until he reveals the spookiest and most surprising story of all: his own.
