A wickedly funny first novel about a dictatorial teacher and the irrepressible boy who stands up to her. Being a new student at the McKegway School for Clever and Gifted Children is crummy enough, but when Toby Wilcox is stuck in the fourth grade homeroom of Mrs. Ravenbach, a vainglorious German tyrant who worships "the order and the discipline," he faces a much bigger challenge--fight back or be ground to goo in the gears of Teutonic efficiency. Toby upends Mrs. Ravenbach's perfectly ordered universe and risks everything to strike a blow for free-thinkers everywhere Mrs. Ravenbach's Way is the first book in the series: The Amazing Escapades of Toby Wilcox.
