Miss Nelson Is Missing

Miss Nelson Is Missing

Book, Music & Lyrics by JOAN CUSHING
Based on the book “Miss Nelson is Missing” and
“Miss Nelson is Back” by HARRY ALLARD
Illustrated by JAMES MARSHALL

“The kids in Room 207 were misbehaving again. Spitballs stuck to the ceiling. Paper planes whizzing through the air. They were the worst-behaved class in the whole school.” But when Miss Nelson disappears and the mean-looking substitute Miss Viola Swamp takes her place, the children are so desperate they hire a detective to find Miss Nelson in this wacky whodunit hit!

Recommended for Kindergarten and older.
