Blog Tour: Charlie Bumpers VS. Teacher of the Year by Bill Harley BOOK REVIEW & GIVEAWAY (Ends Aug. 30)



It can't get any worse for Charlie Bumpers after he learns he has Mrs. Burke fourth grade. So what if she was Teacher of the Year the previous school year. That doesn't mean Charlie can't be afraid of the the one teacher who threatened to take away his recess for the rest of his life. After all, he didn't mean to hit her in the head with his shoe.

No matter how hard he tries, Charlie winds up doing something stupid instead. And with every stupid mistake, he's convinced Mrs. Burke dislikes him even more. However, Charlie learns that there is more to Mrs. Burke than just being strict. In doing so, he gets a glimpse of himself as others see him. 

Though predictable at times, young readers will have no problem relating to Charlie and will see the humor in Charlie's series of blunders. Will easily appeal to the elementary school boy.
