A sweet rhyming story from 1971 about a beloved schoolteacher is back in print!

There once was a very unusual school
That had for its teacher Miss Tillie O'Toole . . .

So begins a rollicking story about a beloved teacher who presents all her lessons in riddles and rhyme, takes her students outside for picnics and kite-flying, and teaches them good, old-fashioned common sense along with the three R's. Charming illustrations of red-haired Miss Tillie O'Toole and her multicultural class make this breezy Little Golden Book as much fun to look at as well as read aloud!

About the Author

MAY JUSTUS (1898-1989) was the daughter of a schoolteacher, and the author of numerous children's books between 1927 and 1980. Most of her books were set in her native Appalachia, and many reflected her own experiences as a young schoolteacher. The public library in Monteagle, Tennessee, is named for her.

HILDE HOFFMANN was a popular illustrator in the 1960s. She illustrated several Golden Book titles in the late 1960s and early 1970s that had to do with children's emotions and self-esteem, including Sometimes I Get Angry and Look at Me Now! The Wonderful School is her only Little Golden Book.
