Poof! There is magic in the air, and readers will need to prepare themselves for some outlandish suprises -- especially when Ms. Spell waves her wand to demonstrate the marvels of good grammar. The spelling review gets a bit out of control when a giant chocolate cake, zombie monkeys with laser-shooting eyes and the irate school principal get involved. An unorthodox teacher gives one of the most unforgettable spelling lessons ever in this zany adventure with eye-popping surprises as well as excellent spelling advice.

Praise For Ms. Spell

"Step aside Ms. Frizzle. . . . Readers may be on the fence as to whether or not to wish for a teacher like Ms. Spell, but regardless, this may boost t-h-e-i-r spelling grades."—Kirkus Reviews
"This magical mixture of vibrant artwork and uproarious learning will keep neophyte spellers glued to their S-E-A-T-S."—Booklist
"Long's digital artwork is silly, amusing, and colorful. . . . This entertaining and instructive story is a good choice for early elementary students, and young English-language learners."—School Library Journal
