It is written for younger children, but the philosophy is much more sophisticated than elementary age. May 12, Beverly rated it really liked it Shelves: jf-general. Funny and very sweet. The author packed a lot of humor and character-building in a short, small package. A sort of "Goodbye, Mr. Chips" for young readers. Feb 01, Relyn rated it it was amazing Shelves: reread.

This book was originally written in French and then translated to English. Interestingly enough the author is actually an American, who has spent her life in France.
This book tells a story of a new teacher, who has some untraditional teaching methods.

Everyone in the class was disappointed, until Monsieur Noel hands out a coupon book to everyone in the class. In the coupon book are coupons to: sleep in late, skip a day of school, not listen in class, make a lot of noise clown around, and eat in class. Soon Madame Incarnation Perez, the military style principle, hears word of these coupon books and has it out to get Monsieur Noel fired.
