Pearl Rabbit and Wagner Mouse have only five days left in the school year with their awesome teacher Ms. Star, in this companion to the Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Book One Funny Day, and Pearl is not excited about next year's teacher. "Ms. Bean is mean!" she says, having peeked into her class one day, and soon she has all of her classmates worried. Pearl announces she's going to stay in Ms. Star's class foreveróbut is Ms. Bean as bad as she seems? As with the other Pearl and Wagner books for readers 6 to 8, the detailed pencil and watercolor cartoons help make each animal character's feelings perfectly clear.
"The pen-and-ink, watercolor, and colored-pencil illustrations feature emotions that are easy to interpret, and they will draw readers in. Children who worry about what the next school year might hold for them will find this book reassuring."óSchool Library Journal
