This book is quite funny. Two brothers are happy their mean old teacher died of old age until they realize their big sister is going to be the new teacher in a one room school house in the 1920s.
The older brother is telling the story so it’s from his point of view.
One funny part is when the boys are camping out and one of their friends and their big sister, Tansy, play a trick on them and make them think they see the ghost of the old teacher.
The books by Richard Peck have humor and show you what life was like in the early 1900’s. He writes the way a person would talk which make the books very easy to read and a great example of voice.
Boys would like many of Peck’s books.
