Dewey Fairchild Book #2 Review!

DEWEY FAIRCHILD, TEACHER PROBLEM SOLVER by Lorri Horn | Kirkus Reviews

Sixth grade dumps a flurry of teacher and school-policy issues on a veteran problem-solver’s plate. So it’s off to middle school and a whole new level of assignments for Dewey-including a teacher whose shark-based curriculum is terrorizing an entire class, the sudden appearance of single-sheet dispensers in all the toilet stalls, and the dismaying prospect of having the snack machines replaced by wholesome produce from a student garden.

“Grass-roots politics at its best, likely to leave readers flushed with laughter. (Fiction. 10-13)

“After all, as Horn puts it in this winning debut, ‘where you found kids, you always found parents who needed some assistance to be, shall we say, their best selves.’ Amen to that. (Fiction. 9-12)
