New Student Gets Old Teacher

The bad news is that Cara Landry is the new kid at Denton Elementary School.

So Cara decides to give Mr. Larson something else to read -- her own newspaper, The Landry News.

Before she knows it, the whole fifth-grade class is in on the project. But then the principal finds a copy of The Landry News, with unexpected results. Tomorrow's headline: Will Cara's Newspaper Cost Mr. Larson His Job? Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “With a knack for delineating likeable teachers, Clements introduces us to Mr. Larson, a burned-out fifth grade teacher, and to his nemesis, Cara Landry. A budding journalist, Cara publishes a paper exposing his frailties. Definitely funny and surprisingly wise. A 1999 Silver Award Winner.” 

    Parents’ Choice

  • “A terrific read about free speech, the power of the pen, and the need to temper truth with mercy.” 

    Library Journal

  • “Actor Andrew McCarthy uses inflection and tone with subtle voice changes to make the fifth grade girls and boys and the stodgy principal vital and believable characters. This is an enjoyable story that also provides a great deal of information on some important and current issues.

    School Library Journal

  • “Sure to stimulate classroom discussion, the novel offers students and teachers well-rounded perspectives and lessons on reconciling appearances with the real story—in the media as well as in private lives.”
