Synopsis: What's worse than a blue Monday?  For Richard "Beast" Best, it's a purple Monday spent climbing a fat brown rope with fat brown knots.
Beast wishes he could climb up that rope like Emily Arrow and Matthew Jackson.  Just looking at it hanging down from the gym ceiling makes him dizzy
Beast is afraid and hopes his friends won't find out.  But Mrs. Miller, the meanest substitute teacher in the whole school, finds out his secret and tells him to meet her in the gym after school.  Miller the Killer. What will she do to him?

From School Library Journal: Grade 2-4 Richard (the beast) Best and the kids of the Polk Street School are back. Richard's crisis this time is that he is terrified of climbing the knotted rope that hangs from the gym ceiling. Richard overcomes his fear of the dreaded rope with the help of one of the school's most feared substitute teachers. Giff writes about the concerns of second and third graders with a sure hand. Fans of the Polk Street School will be happy to have another installment, and new fans will be made if this is used as a read-aloud for primary grade children. Candy Colborn, Cottonwood Creek Elementary School, Englewood, Colo.
