Why I Hate Green Beans cover art

Why Is Charlie Brown’s Teacher Talking To Me?

I had the coolest language arts teacher in the eighth grade. Not only did Mrs. Smith make studying grammar, composition, and public speaking a fun activity, but she also took the time to invest in our lives. Her assignments were creative and entertaining, and the often involved her stuents really digging into their tender junior high bains, forcing us to take a good strong look at who we currently were as well as who we wanted to be.

Based on this intro, would you read more or pass on this book?

    PS Yesterday you asked about the character with the name Death on my review yesterday. I meant to explain that one! Whoops! They actually do talk about it His mother was an English teacher and his name is pronounced like Deeth and he’s named after Dorothy L. Sayers’ Lord Peter Wimsey who has Deeth as part of his many names.
