I have been searching for this book for so long with no luck. Unfortunately, I don’t remember the title.
I got it when I was in elementary school in the 1970’s. It was probably published early to mid 70’s. I got it through one of the school’s reading program catalogs, so it may be a Scholastic book or another company like that. My best friend and several other students also purchased it. It was a Halloween book. It was about school students who have a young, pretty new teacher come to their school. Her name was Miss – something. Maybe Miss Grey. (I don’t trust my memory that far though.) The students think there is something odd about her. She wears a big, wide-brimmed hat. Of course, she’s suspected of being a witch.
The book was a thin paperback. The illustrations were pencil drawings in black and white. That’s about all I’ve got on it. It was such an unusual story and I’ve never seen the book again. Wish I knew where my copy got off to. Probably gave it away when I felt I was too old for children’s stories… geez…
When I search online, the later 80’s series about “Miss Nelson” pops up, but that is not it.
Thank you for your time!
