Read full description of the books In Control, Ms. Wiz?:I picked up several of this Ms. Wiz series to share with my students on the class Kindle and enjoyed them for the most part. They all remind me a little bit of a British cross between Miss Frizzle and just a touch of Miss Nelson (of the "Miss Nelson is Missing" fame). Like Miss Friz, Ms. Wiz shows up and turns the world of her favorite kids upside down with magical mystery, but without the educational, science-y bit.
This series is very British and includes many British-English spellings and turns of phrase that may not be immediately accessible to American children, but the nice thing about reading on the Kindle is the instant dictionary look-up feature. I learned a thing or two about British spelling along the way, myself. Who knows? Diving into this series might actually breed some budding Anglophiles.
This particular volume was my favorite as it has Ms. Wiz saving a local library by bringing storybook characters to life. It's exactly the kind of story I would have enjoyed thinking about as a youngster. It might work well into a creative writing lesson as it is short but packed with kid-friendly humor.
