There are some pretty weird grown-ups in Bailey City!
There's a new guidance counselor at Bailey Elementary School and he's giving the kids the creeps. No one understands why his skin is so pale, why he hides from the sun, or why his skin is deathly cold to the touch. But Counselor Drake couldn't really be Count Dracula, could he?

We've read several books in this series and our girls like them. We are skipping around the series, but it doesn't seem to matter much. We will certainly read more as we come across them. They are quick, entertaining reads and aren't scary.
The collection of "The adventures of the Bailey School Kids" stories are among my all-time favorite children's books. Witty, mischievous and fun, these short and silly books continue to bring giggles to the young and old. Just as I have enjoyed them as a kid, my own children also love them today. I even catch myself re-reading them (alone) from time to time. What can I say? I guess I'll always be a BSK kid at heart.
This book was amazing!this book was about a new guidance counselor and the kids though he was Dracula the famouse vampire.In bailey school there two vampires mrs.Jeepers and mr.Drake.The kids thought that mr.Drake was a vampire because he had black clouthes and black cow boy boots.my opinion of this book is i like it because it interte me of soving mistery.This book is fiction is a mistery book.
The Bailey School Kids is a best-selling children's book series by Marcia Thornton Jones and Debbie Dadey. Its main characters are a group of four children (Eddie, Howie, Liza, Melody) who suspect some persons in the stories are popular folk lore or fairy tale characters. They are appealing because they mix a familiar story in with this group of kids. Mid-grammar school
I have to admit that I haven't read these books since I was in middle school, so my opinion of what makes a book good has probably changed quite drastically. These books were so fun when I was a kid though. I will be buying them for my kids when they get a little older.
My favorite part was when they thought there was another vampire in bailey school.the worst part was when Eddie went to his room and the others thought he was in big trouble.the best character was Mrs. jeepers.the worst character was Eddie.Auryn 9yo
Just plain silliness for the kids. And the vampire (not quite proven to be such) in this story does drink Pink Lemonade with great relish. If I can convince my niece to pick up more, I'll be reading them with her.
A silly series that creates more questions than it answers. It's great for formulating theories as well as predictions. The class dynamics should be very familiar to those of the Magic School Bus generation.
