About The Book
A unique principal named Mr. Bundy runs PS 88 in this silly, fun-to-read Aladdin QUIX chapter book that’s perfect for emerging readers!
Acclaimed author Stephanie Calmenson turns fairy tales on their ears with silly adventures featuring Principal Bundy. In this Mr. Bundy (mis)adventure, Mr. Bundy gets caught up in a magical, messy spell cast by one of his silly students! Will the students of PS 88 be able to undo the muddled magic?
Mr. Bundy is the principal of PS 88. He plans great assembly programs. He had just started planning a new one when a letter in a glittery envelope arrived.
Mr. Bundy quickly tore open the envelope. The letter said:
Are you looking for a NEW and EXCITING program for your students? Look no further!
The answer is right in your hands.
Olivia Martin, DS
A visitor from the department of sanitation—the DS—is just what PS 88 needs, thought Mr. Bundy. Dr. Olivia Martin can help us keep our school neat and clean.
Inside the envelope was a packet that said Dr. Martin’s Magic Powder.
Great! We can always use a free sample of cleaning powder, thought Mr. Bundy.
He was quite impressed and was about to read more when Roger knocked on his door.
“Hi, Mr. Bundy! What’s my job today?” Roger asked.
Every couple of weeks, a different student had the honor of being the principal’s helper. Today was Roger’s turn.
“Welcome, Roger,” said Mr. Bundy. He glanced at his watch. “I’m due at Ms. Tilly’s kindergarten class in a couple of minutes for a poetry reading,” he said. “Here’s what I’d like you to do while I’m gone.”
Mr. Bundy had a stack of newsletters on his desk for the PS 88 parents.
“Count out the correct number of newsletters for each class,” said Mr. Bundy. “When you’re done, please drop them in the teachers’ mailboxes.”
“Sure thing, Mr. B!” said Roger.
This job was a no-brainer. After all, Roger was one of the smartest kids in the school.
