‘Stuck!’ he wailed. ‘I’m stuck.’ ‘Oh, dear,’ said Mr. Jupiter. ‘That is a problem.’ Ham tugged and twisted. He pushed and pulled. He even tried tapping the jar on the edge of the desk the way his mother did when she could not get the mayonnaise open.

This is an excerpt of when Ham got his hand stuck in a jar. This book is about some fourth graders and how much trouble they make. They get a new teacher. Will the teachers make the kids better people? This book is not a series. This is about a bunch of fourth graders, and what they do at their school.

These are some of the students and teachers from the book. Mr. Jupiter is a fun teacher. Mrs. Turner is a librarian. There are many characters in this book, like Rachel, who likes to be quiet. Ham is a person who eats a lot. Stanford is a smart boy, and Rose is just an average person in school. Calvin is a person who is not smart. Humphrey is a good student. Amisha is a good speller and is a big show off. Lil is a person who is good at poetry.

I liked this book a lot because I am about to be in fourth grade and I would want to hear how they enjoyed or hated this grade. I think Candace Fleming did a good job with this book because she made it very humorous. She made it fun for kids. I would probably say that six to ten year olds could read this book. However, I still think she could make it better to read because in some parts it was boring.

I recommend this book for whoever likes funny books and books about school.
