This was Deacon's first ever library book from school!

I rated this three stars but I'd give the story itself maybe two. First of all, if Miss Birmbaum is so mean, why is she throwing a party? Why does plum pudding make her shrink? Why does a cupcake make her grow again? Why is no one too surprised to find her smushed into a cupcake? WHY?

I gave it one more star because when I finished it, my son asked me to read it again. So even though I didn't really enjoy it, I'm not in the book's target demo

Miss Irma Birmbaum was on tough teacher. Even so, she wanted to have a party for the last day of class. But after school when she was going through all the preparations, something goes terribly wrong and she starts to shrink. Can she return to normal size in time to pull of the party for her students?

Fun illustrations.
