A hilarious tale of classroom antics every kid and teacher will love!

Things aren't going well for Room 4. The weather is horrendous, the zoo field trip is cancelled, and Miss Cross has an awful headache. Flynn blows a raspberry. "Go and sit on the bench!" Miss Cross orders. Ruby and Phoebe argue. "The bench!" Oscar takes too long at the toilet. "The BENCH!" Soon, the whole class is on the bench, and it isn't long before Miss Cross sends herself, too! Of course, no storm or bad morning can last forever, and soon giggles—and a very happy ending—pull the class together.

Funny, heartwarming, and adorably illustrated, The Naughty Bench is one story every teacher will recognize and every classroom will love! A perfect read for rainy, grumpy mornings (and a delightful way to get a wayward class back on track), this tale by long-time children's author AH Benjamin is destined to become an instant classroom classic.
