A wild and funny celebration of individuality!

This was a great book. It was about a fifth grade class that had a substitute teacher named Mrs. Maxwell. She had a great-nephew in the class named Simon, but Simon was very embarrassed about his great-aunt being the substitute. He thought she was really wacky and always wore clothes that never matched. She also had a pet parrot that she would bring into the classroom. The best part of the book was when their class wanted to win the science fair by making a machine called "The Mighty Muculent-Eg ...more

I gave this book 3 stars because it wasn’t my favorite book. No M ore Nasty was not my favorite because it complained all of the time. It was a very predictable book. The only subject this book talked about was the fact that Simon struggled to keep the secret about his teacher, Mrs. Maxwell being his aunt.

It was not a good tough in the book to say that the vice principal didn’t like Mrs. Maxwell bec ...more

No More Nasty is a pretty good book! It was an ordinary day and Mrs. Biggs wasn't at school. Simon looked at the clock it was 9:05. Nobody knew that Mrs. Biggs was ever late for class or anything. She was always at school on time. Mindy, Mandy, and Mollie had formed a circle with their desks. Mollie was listening to music on her headphones, and Mindy and Mandy were writing a story called "The Three Little Pigs." well I hope that you read this book! So far I give it a 3 star.
This book was okay but in the book, they have a teacher that retires. When this happens Simon (the main character)is faced with his crazy Aunt Mattie as a substitute! It is kind of a little kids book but it has like 150 pages. Anyway this book is not one of my favorites!
Mom had sent this to me as I began Substitute teaching in Hawaii. It gave a different perspective regarding student and teacher. It had it's funny moments. Something to read to my child someday.
