Miss Brooks Loves Books! (and I don't)
( by Barbara Bottner/ illus. by Michael Emberley, Knopf $17.99 Score: )

Missy has a teacher who looks a bit like Miss Frizzle's younger sister, a teacher who is just over-the-top crazy for books. Poor Missy has to do a book presentation and her problem is finding a book she likes. Her mom stands firm on not doing the job for Missy. But once she finds a book with a well-known ogre Missy gets her act in gear. The idea of the story is funnier than the resolution, but kids who have suffered through assignments like this one will relate.
