This story is about a student, Richard "Beast" Best, repeating the second grade. He has to face the same old teacher and take a special reading class with younger students. Just like the previous year, Richard can't seem to stay out of trouble. Fortunately, the reading teacher, Mrs. Paris, helps Richard to begin to like reading and maybe win the school banner. This book offers an affectionate look at young elementary students going through the ups and downs of life in the classroom.
