Book Image Not Available

Need a children's book that you are willing to read over and over again with your child?  Dear Mrs. Magootie is it!

Want an interactive bedtime story that your child can 'complete' by finishing the coloring on pages and adding drawings?  Dear Mrs. Magootie is it!

Want to laugh out loud at some seriously crazy school situations?  Yep.....Dear Mrs. Magootie is the answer!



Written by a real school principal, and with illustrations that alternate between fantasy and reality, Dear Mrs. Magootie is truly an adult-friendly children's book. Grown-ups will enjoy the interactions between the characters, while kids will love the crazy situations and finding new things in the illustrations each time they look! Dear Mrs. Magootie is a must for educators AND parents who like to laugh with their child as they read their bedtime story. All educators have had experiences so unbelievable they should be put in a book. In Dear Mrs. Magootie, the written exchanges between a fictional principal and an eccentric parent take these to the extreme. Dear Mrs. Magootie is designed to be interactive, with spaces on each page that children can color to finish the scene and add their own drawings to the book—and isn't actually complete until a child adds his or her finishing touches to each page!
