Ms Roys asks for her students' attention, but she doesn't really need to. Who can ignore a teacher who wears silly hats and colorful skirts, has a graveyard for used-up pencils, believes in magic and ghosts, and has special eyeballs that let her see the things that make her students unique?
In this collection of fun, lively poems by Kalli Dakos, you'll explore the world of Ms. Roys's classroom -- and you may not want to go home!
