Wilson and Miss Lovely

Stadler, John. 2009. Wilson and Miss Lovely.

"Wilson was very fond of his new teacher.
'Miss Lovely! Miss Lovely! Miss Lovely! was all he could think about."

Wilson loves school. Loves it. He has just finished his first week of school. And he is so excited about going back for more. He just loves--is crazy about--his teacher Miss Lovely. He wakes up excited and looking forward to the school day. But Wilson is in for a couple of surprises. No one else at his house is up yet. No one is at the bus stop. So he runs to find it completely empty. What happened? Where is everyone? Throughout the book, there are fold-out pages that show an ominous-looking creature--a green dragon of sorts.

"Yet, not so very far away, something else could be seen quite clearly. Closer, closer, and closer it came!"

The text is melodramatically mysterious. It's a cute story really with a few fun twists.
