Rupert P. Brown III is a scientist. In his room he has an aquarium experiment, a turtle experiment, and a nutrition experiment (two guinea pigs). But when he starts fifth grade, things happen that he has to label, “No known way to prove scientifically.” The new teacher, Miss Switch, has eyes in the back of her head. She can control spitballs and water fountains. Eventually, Rupert discovers her secret: Miss Switch is a witch. When she asks for his help, however, Rupert will need every bit of his scientific skill to find a solution to her spooky dilemma. Barbara Brooks Wallace is author of many popular books for children, including Sparrows in the Scullery. In The Trouble with Miss Switch, she creates an adventurous tale where science and witchcraft join forces—with hilarious results. Parents may remember this story as a popular television Weekend Special. In this lively audio production, narrator Jeff Woodman captures the energy of each spirited moment.
