As they begin fifth grade, Rupert and Amelia discover that their teacher, Miss Switch, is a witch. Using his scientific mind, Rupert helps her solve a spooky dilemma. In return, the witch teaches Rupert and Amelia some magic. But soon Miss Switch disappears, and another teacher takes her place. One night that winter, a dark figure delivers a strange bottle to the children. Scientific curiosity leads Rupert to take the cork out. Suddenly, the bottle releases an ugly demon, Mordo, who plans to kidnap a whole class from Pepperdine Elementary School. Only a witch, only Miss Switch, can stop him. How can they contact her? Barbara Brooks Wallace's two novels, The Trouble With Miss Switch and Miss Switch to the Rescue have had lasting popularity with young adults across the country. The stories were also made into an animated Weekend Special for television. Narrator Jeff Woodman's performance adds extra drama to the adventures of the unforgettable witch and her young friends.

"The adventures of Rupert P. Brown III, grade school scientist; his school pal Amelia; and the good witch Miss Switch continue in the second installment of this hilarious and popular series. Amelia is kidnapped by a warlock and taken back in time to seventeenth-century New England. So is their class. Never fear though, for Miss Switch saves the day. The humor is very appealing to kids (among many things, the class bully is given a permanent sneer by Miss Switch), who will find the characters just as appealing. Told by Rupert, this story is superbly read by Jeff Woodman, whose juvenile-sounding voice is delightful. His performance of the characters is wonderfully imaginative as he uses a wide array of intonations and accents to good effect. The narrative sections capture the wonder and excitement of Rupert at all that he and Amelia encounter. M.T.F. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
