Mademoiselle Charlotte is a modern Mary Poppins who wears a large hat and a crumpled dress that make her look like a scarecrow, and she talks to a rock. In the first story in the series, Mademoiselle Charlotte is THE NEW TEACHER. 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 In the second story, she is THE MYSTERIOUS LIBRARIAN who arrives in the village of Saint-Anatole to take over the tiny library. The locals are surprised to find out that she does things differently. Wearing a long blue dress and a giant hat, she takes her books out for a walk in a wheelbarrow and shows the children that reading can be fun and useful.  In the third story, Mademoiselle Charlotte is THE NEW FOOTBALL COACH. Prepare yourself to see how she uses very odd methods to prepare the children for the big match, teaching them how to lose! In the final installment of the series, Miss Charlotte becomes A FUNNY SORT OF MINISTER when she accidentally picks up the Prime Minister’s elephant-hide bag instead of her own. As it contains important documents and the politician is due to make an important speech on children’s education, Miss Charlotte – hoping that she might get a ministerial job out of this – embarks on a quest to track him down.
