Inspired by the "good old, bad old" science fiction movies that turn up on TV each October, Lisa Passen has created a hilarious tale that proves even the meanest teacher might just have a heart of gold.
It was Halloween. And it was a school day.
The children were eager for school to be over.
Everyone was excited about going trick or treating.
Everyone except Miss Irma Birmbaum, the toughest teacher in town. She's so mean that she assigns homework on Halloween!
That very night, however, after she receives a surprise visit from an alien spacecraft, Miss Irma Birmbaum is mysteriously transformed into ... The Fifty-Foot Teacher. As if things weren't bad enough for Miss Birmbaum's class! Can anything save Halloween for these kids, or will their giant teacher spoil the fun?
