Books That Were Definite NO's!
I heard great things about The Dunderheads by Paul Fleischman. It was a fun book and reminded me a lot of Matilda by Roald Dahl.
HOWEVER, not many teachers want to read their class a book about children breaking into their evil teacher's house to steal something from a safe. And the villainous teacher is this story is truly despicable!
So-o-o-o, fun for individual students. Not good to require every teacher in a school district to read to his or her class!
