Miami Jackson Sees It Through This American chapter book for younger readers (Years 3 or 4, perhaps) gives an entertaining and humorous account of one boy's difficulties with a formidable new teacher. Miss Amerita Spriggins and Miami Jackson get off to such a bad start that he is determined to move to another class to escape this 'B-movie monster' who gives out detentions like coupons. In his own words, and to his own great surprise, Miami finds himself describing a sequence of events which brings about an unexpected thaw in their relations, With its short chapters and frequent use of black and white illustration this book would include less confident readers in its appeal.
