A silly series that creates more questions than it answers. It's great for formulating theories as well as predictions. The class dynamics should be very familiar to those of the Magic School Bus generation.


I liked this book because there was a mystery in it.


I've been trying to remember what this book was called for the longest time. I read this in the 5th grade and I remember it rather vividly. I really enjoyed this particular book.


There was even an opportunity to teach about idioms on page 55.




It was really cool how the girl had braces and they kept changing colors and she always wore boots. I liked that about her and I thought it was really cool how she made the pottery.


I LOVE these books! I loved these series when I was a kid. Excellent.

The Bailey School Kids is a best-selling children's book series by Marcia Thornton Jones and Debbie Dadey. Its main characters are a group of four children (Eddie, Howie, Liza, Melody) who suspect some persons in the stories are popular folk lore or fairy tale characters. They are appealing because they mix a familiar story in with this group of kids. Mid-grammar school


Howie, Eddie, Melody, Liza, were finding out about Mrs Zork and why she was stealing colors. Liza, Melody, Eddie, Howie, thought Mrs. Zork was an alien.

I've been reading this series to my niece and she really gets into the stories. She is a fan of ghost stories and mysteries, but she can not yet read independently. This is my first attempt to read her a non-picture book and I was pleasantly surprised that she stayed very interested throughout the story. Its a short chapter book, so we read a few chapters each day. There are occasional illustrations in the book, which helped us to visualize and make predictions. I definitely plan to read other books in this series with her.


there is a new art class teacher and people think it is an alien because she takes color.when 4 of the kids go see her house they do something.when they did something they got everything back to normal.Auryn 7yo

Five stars for nostalgia. I read this book to the point that the cover is cracked and the pages are bent when I was younger. I found my copy hiding in a stack of books, and read it again for fun.Still a cute little story & Mrs. Zork is still creepy. XD

Very simple 'mystery'.
