Is Miss Flint REALLY the Meanest Teacher in the World? Well, she's so mean she tries to steal her students' Halloween candy. All the other kids in school have pets in their rooms, but Miss Flint throws a hissy fit at the very mention of anything living in her room. And she carries a silver whistle around her neck, which she blows shrilly and often if anyone steps out of line. So what do the 4th grade kids of Haywood Elementary School do? Do they just give up? Or do they get even? Join Janey and the gang as they come up with one riotous idea after another for thwarting the dastardly Miss Flint. And whether Miss Flint winds up stuck in a pile of horse manure or treed by a grizzly bear on the class picnic, the fun never stops.

About the Author:

Don Sawyer survived a childhood in Michigan that included a teacher very much like Miss Flint. It has taken him a long time to get over that grade 4 year, and now he's getting even. He is happy to report that revenge is sweet and funny! He sincerely hopes that no Miss Flints cross your path and knows that your current teacher is very, very nice. Now Don lives happily with his wife, Jan, in Salmon Arm, BC. His two daughters, Farish and Melissa, are grown up and living exciting lives of their own. Don has taught in rural Newfoundland and BC's Fraser Canyon, as well as on the Spallumcheen First Nation reserve. He also taught adults at Okanagan College. For the last 15 years Don has been teaching and managing development projects in West Africa. He has written many articles, a non-fiction book about teaching in Newfoundland, young adult fiction and several children's books.

Review:

The Meanest Teacher in the World contains seven chapters. Each chapter tells a story about the evil Miss Flint and is illustrated with black and white drawings in a variety of sizes. The full page illustrations are large and clear, but the smaller illustrations located near the middle of the page get lost in the gutter. Don Sawyer lived in Michigan when he was in grade four. Like the characters in this book, he, too, survived a year with a teacher like Miss Flint. Today, Sawyer lives in British Columbia with his family. Sawyer has been working in West Africa for the past fifteen years teaching and managing development projects. Sawyer, who has written books for adults as well as youth, has written a second book featuring Miss Flint called Miss Flint Meets the Great Kweskin. Miss Flint may have her students' best interests at heart, but her students don't see it that way. With this book, young readers can have fun reading about the capers both in and out of Miss Flint's classroom, and they then breathe a sigh of relief that they don't have such a teacher - or be inspired to tell their own story that will rival a Miss Flint one! Recommended. --Tanya Boudreau, CM Magazine
