Astonishing Kids And Families With The Fun of Broadway-Like Plays and A Lot More!

Who is Miss Nelson? Let’s take a look at the Miss Nelson series.

Did you know the Miss Nelson books are a trilogy?

There are three books in the Miss Nelson Series!

Published in 1977, 1982, and 1985, these fantastic books feature the mild-mannered teacher Miss Nelson, and ruthless Viola Swamp…and show how the two might be more alike than their students know.

Miss Nelson is Missing marks the beginning of the series, with Miss Nelson Has a Field Day serving as the finale. Miss Nelson is Back, introduces Mr. Blandsworth, the dull substitute teacher.
