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.
