STORY DESCRIPTION: 1920′s rural Colorado. When the regular teacher of the valley’s one-room schoolhouse must leave, bringing an early school closing, the children decide to take over, secretly. But there are many problems to surmount: trouble-making Herbert Bixler, a suspicious School Board, plus the fact that the new teacher, Ida Bidson, is not only one of the students but only 14 years old! The Secret School will make you laugh. It will make you think. It will make you wait for the next instalment.
READING LEVEL: Elementary and up.
