Steinke, Aaron Nels. Mr. Wolf’s Class.

“I think this book is really good. It is about a new teacher who was really nervous about teaching. When they go to the school library Penny, a student who is very, very sleepy because she has a new baby brother at home, is missing!! There is a new kid named Margot, who is looking for a new friend. She makes a friend, Sampson, on the bus who she might have just something in common with. Aziza just want’s everyone to be quiet and do their work.”
