Mrs. Ravenbach's Way

A Novel

Published by Regan Arts.
Distributed by Simon & Schuster

A wickedly funny first novel about a dictatorial teacher and the irrepressible boy who stands up to her.

Being a new student at the McKegway School for Clever and Gifted Children is crummy enough, but when Toby Wilcox is stuck in the fourth grade homeroom of Mrs. Ravenbach, a vainglorious German tyrant who worships "the order and the discipline," he faces a much bigger challenge—fight back or be ground to goo in the gears of Teutonic efficiency.

Toby upends Mrs. Ravenbach's perfectly ordered universe and risks everything to strike a blow for free-thinkers everywhere!

Mrs. Ravenbach’s Way is the first book in the series: The Amazing Escapades of Toby Wilcox.

An edgy, subversive revenge fantasy in which kids speak truth to power . . . The order-and-discipline-obsessed Mrs. Ravenbach . . . is also reminiscent of Roald Dahl's evil Miss Trunchbull from Matilda and Professor Umbridge of Harry Potter fame.”
