Pearl and Wagner have only five days left in the school year with their awesome teacher, Ms. Star, and Pearl is not excited about next year’s teacher, Ms. Bean. Pearl imagines taking spelling tests with super-hard words, doing one hundred jumping jacks every morning, and counting backward–by sevens! Pearl announces she’s going to stay in Ms. Star’s class forever. But is Ms. Bean as bad as she seems?
The delightful fifth book in the Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor-winning series shows how a best friend and a new perspective can change everything.
There’s an eye toast toady, er, that’s eye test today at school, but Wagner can’t see the board. As his best friend Pearl says, “It’s glasses time!” But Wagner hates his new glasses-they make him look like a guppy, and a mean old bully calls him “Four Eyes.” Wagner vows to never wear his glasses again, until Pearl and all his friends give themselves inspired new nicknames just like his. Suddenly, “Four Eyes” has a nice ring to it . . . and being able to see isn’t so bad, either! The delightful fourth book in the Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor-winning series shows how a best friend and a new perspective can change everything.

In the end, no secret will ever come between Pearl and Wagner!
