The DunderheadsPaperback - 2012
Miss Breakbone hates kids. Especially the time-squandering, mindwandering, doodling, dozing dunderheads in her class. But when she confiscates Junkyard's crucial find, she finally goes too far. Enter Wheels (and his souped-up bike with forty-eight extra gears), Pencil (who can draw anything from memory), Spider (look up and you'll find him), and their fellow misfits in a spectacular display of teamwork aimed at teaching Miss Breakbone a lesson she won't soon forget. From the incomparable Paul Fleischman comes a winning cast of underdogs -- and one of the most terrifying teachers you'll ever meet -- brought to vivid life in David Roberts's quirky, hilarious illustrations.
