Description
Mysterious goings-on transpire in the classroom at the end of the hall. One of the four rules posted above the blackboard in the tall teacher's classroom is "Raise your hand to talk," but Paul can't seem to stop himself from just blurting out whatever he has to saythat is, until confetti-like moths begin fluttering around his face every time he opens his mouth. Not surprisinglygiven the way things work at W. T. Melon Elementary Schoolthere is a solution that Paul soon comes to learn. And so it goes with Kimberly, who has a bad habit of cutting in line, and Zachary, who can't seem to stay put in his chair.
