I Know an Old Teacher

By Anne Bowen
Illustrated by Stephen Gammell

A fun twist on a favorite rhyming song by Anne Bowen (What DO Teachers Do after YOU Leave School) with illustrations by Caldecott Medal winning artist, Stephen Gammell.

Meet Miss Bindley - an ordinary teacher with an unusual appetite. Miss Bindley doesn’t eat the usual fare like tuna melts and meatloaf. Instead, when her stomach grumbles, it’s the class pets she has her eye - er, stomach - on. Watch out! You never know who might be next.
