INFO: Robinson, Barbara. The Best (Worst) School Year Ever. P. 1994.
DESC: One of the popular mid-range (N, O, P) “3rd grade drama” stories that chronicles (think “Wayside School”) the seemingly never-ending shenanigans of life in 3rd grade. In this tale, Woodrow Wilson Elementary School learns to live with the Herdmans – a notorious ‘outlaw’ family that do everything from stealing (and tatooing) neighborhood babies to staging a fiasco involving the whole school staff and the District Supervisor. What will our narrator do, stuck in a class with Imogene Herdman – especially since the yearlong class project is to stand up and compliment everyone in class about their good points?
