To make matters worse, the school inspector announces a visit to the school and on the morning he’s due to come, the children are delighted to see Mrs Dove turn on her heel just outside the school gates. Of course, Class 4a erupts into chaos straight away, but then along comes Miss Braitwhistle, the exchange teacher from Newcastle upon Tyne. She takes charge of lessons and always stays as cool as a cucumber, even when faced with 4a. And the children suddenly discover that school really can be fun. They’ve never had a teacher like Miss Braitwhistle before. With her, they study the subject of blood circulation standing on their heads, the indoor swimming pool is turned into an ice rink, a horse comes to tea and Miss Braitwhistle even has a recipe for making the saddest dog in the world happy again. The pupils all agree: Miss Braitwhistle is simply fabulous and even the headmaster, Mr Fishley, is seen to smile for the first time.
But one morning, Mr Fishley comes into the classroom to tell the children that it’s time for Miss Braitwhistle to go back to Newcastle upon Tyne. He is clearly just as sad about this as the children, but they decide to take Miss Braitwhistle at her favourite words – wait and see –and cannot help believing that their favourite teacher will soon be back.
