The troublemaking students of Ms. Jenkins' class arrive at school one day and gleefully discover they'll be having a substitute teacher. But this is no ordinary substitute teacher--he's a substitute creacher, and this multi-tentacled, yellow-spotted, one-eyed monster has come to put a stop to the mischief of Ms. Jenkins' misbehaving class. He tells them 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 the class's biggest surprise--and change of heart--comes when Mr. Creacher reveals one last telling story: his own.
Chris Gall's dynamic and colorful artwork shines in his most commercial book yet, one that both parents and monster-loving kids are sure to read over and over again as they search the illustrations for hidden details.
