New Student Gets Old Teacher The bad news is that Cara Landry is the new kid at Denton Elementary School. The worse news is that her teacher, Mr. Larson, would rather read the paper and drink coffee than teach his students anything. So Cara decides to give Mr. Larson something else to read -- her own newspaper, The Landry News. Before she knows it, the whole fifth-grade class is in on the project. But then the principal finds a copy of The Landry News, with unexpected results. Tomorrow's headline: Will Cara's Newspaper Cost Mr. Larson His Job?

Professional reviews

"Andrew Clements tells a story of students making a difference. Fifteen years ago, fifth-grade teacher Mr. Larson was named "Teacher of the Year" three years running, but that was a l-o-o-ong time ago. These days he's a burned-out shell of his former self. When new student Cara Landry writes an editorial in her own newspaper about the "lack of teaching" in Room 145, she angers Mr. Larson--but also shakes him out of his lethargy. Zoe Kazan's delivery is more burned-out teacher than enthusiastic student. Her pacing is off-kilter at times, putting pauses in unusual places that confuse meaning. Nonetheless, this is an entertaining story of a class that rekindles a teacher's commitment. N.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
