Spoon in the Bathroom Wall
The Bloggins School boiler room isn't glamorous, but it's home-steamy-home for Martha Snapdragon, the janitor's daughter. This school is anything but normal: There are misbehaving dragons, dastardly dealings between the principal and the school bully, and a giant bejeweled spoon stuck in the bathroom wall! Martha thinks it's time for some big changes, but a mere fourth grader has no chance of budging the school hierarchy--or a giant spoon for that matter. Or does she?
Tony Johnston's funny, magical spoof of the legend of The Sword in the Stone is full of big laughs and conveys some poignant truths about teaching, leadership, and the responsibilities we have to one another.
