|We've got old favorites here, and new.
Old: Daddy Longlegs, Mary Poppins series, Trixie Beldon Mysteries, and a host of others.
New: The Teacher's Funeral by Richard Peck. All of his books are funny, but this one starts with the death of the mean old school marm. The narrator's sister decides she will be the new teacher, and plucks the pointer out of the old gal's hand before they close the lid of the casket. It is hilarious and Peck always ends his tales with a clever and surprising twist.
