I think that this book is cool because it has Ms. Coleman Levin and Zack. Zack is the one that the weird stuff happens to. I don’t like Vernon because he brags that his parents are rich. He also doesn’t keep promises. I loved that the book had a part where the substitute hunches her back when she walks. On a scale of 1 – 10, I would say it is a 9 because you can read it again and again and never get bored. My favorite part was when Ms. Coleman Levin, Zack, and Spencer catch the teacher by using a cup of powdered garlic, wolfs bane, deadly nightshade and catnip. Who else is as smart as that?! My second favorite part was when Zack reached for the tiny piece of homework in Ms. Wolfowitz’s mouth and she almost bit his finger off!
I would recommend this book to kids who love a combination of funny and scary stories. I think it would be best for kids in first or second grade. Dan Greenberg is a great writer because he writes in a very detailed way. I recommend this book to you. Zack does too!
