The Berenstain Bears and the Substitute TeacherA substitute teacher means only one thing—it’s time to play some tricks!
Brother Bear is just starting to get nervous about tomorrow’s big history test when Teacher Bob announces that the students will have a substitute teacher for the next three days. According to mischievous Too-Tall Grizzly, there’s only one way to deal with a grouch-puss old sub: pranks! Instead of studying, Too-Tall, Brother Bear, and Cousin Freddy stay up all night coming up with wacky jokes. They get a trick book and some fake spiders—they even put a frog in the teacher’s desk! But when the sub turns out to be more fun than they imagined, the boys realize they may have made a terrible mistake. Will they have time to undo the jokes before the test? Or are they about to become history?

About the author
Stan and Jan Berenstain
Stan Berenstain (1923–2005) and Jan Berenstain (1923–2012) were a husband-and-wife cartooning team best known for creating the internationally beloved Berenstain Bears. Both born in Philadelphia, they met on the first day of art school, and were married after World War II. Inspired by their children’s love for Dr. Seuss, the Berenstains created a cartoon version of their own family, and with The Big Honey Hunt (1962) began a series that would stretch to more than two hundred volumes. Starring Papa Bear, Mama Bear, Sister Bear, and Brother Bear, the books quickly became popular for their evocative drawings and simple explanations of wholesome themes. The stories sold more than 200 million copies worldwide and have been adapted as movies, television shows, and amusement park attractions. The Berenstains’ younger son, Mike, has overseen the series since his parents passed away, ensuring that it will continue to be popular with each new generation of young readers.
