The Dunderheads

author: Paul Fleischman
illustrator: David Roberts

Miss Breakbone hates kids. Especially the time-squandering, mind-wandering, doodling, dozing dunderheads in her class. But each kidís special talent is crucial to a spectacular display of teamwork that teaches Miss Breakbone a lesson she wonít soon forget. From the incomparable Paul Fleischman comes a winning cast of underdogs- and one of the most terrifying teachers youíll ever meet ó brought to vivid life in David Robertsís quirky, hilarious illustrations.

ďA celebration of multiple intelligences, teamwork, and kid power.Ē ó School Library Journal (starred review)
