Mademoiselle Charlotte, the new teacher, is not like the others: she wears a large hat and a crumpled dress that make her look like a scarecrow, and she talks to a rock. The children think she is crazy at first, but soon realize she makes school more fun than ever, getting them to measure the room with cooked spaghetti in maths class, telling fascinating stories about a gorilla and even taking the pupils on at football.

The first book in Dominique Demers’s popular Adventure of Miss Charlotte series, The New Teacher, brilliantly illustrated by Tony Ross, is an entertaining, imaginative and inspiring book that will make you wish you had a teacher just like Mademoiselle Charlotte.

REVIEWS

  • The New Teacher – superbly illustrated by Tony Ross, who shows us the characters to perfection – is an entertaining, imaginative and inspiring book that will make you wish you had a teacher just like Mademoiselle Charlotte.

    Parents in Touch

  • A modern-day Mary Poppins who has charmed her way into the hearts of hundreds of thousands of Quebec children … Like all Demers’s stories, this one is fabulously penned, imaginative, relevant and funny.
