Everyone didn’t believe Susan when she said that Mr. Smith, her teacher, was an alien. Well everyone except for Peter, but he thought it was a game at first. Mr. Smith was VERY STRANGE. He didn’t like music or people anywhere near his house. When Susan and Peter discover Mr. Smith’s evil plans, it is up to them to stop him!
I thought this book was really weird and I don’t really like the characters in it. I also didn’t like how everyone in the book seemed to be turning into their opposite. I know that there is a whole series of the “My Teacher” books by Mr. Coville and that the books are pretty popular. You can find out more about the books at www.brucecoville.com . I looked at some of the reviews others have given the books and other people really like them, so they may be worth a try for you. The book was an easy read and wasn’t too scary so I think it would be OK for younger kids.
