About the Book

If there’s a problem in school, there’s no substitute for the world-saving substitute teachers of the S.O.S.! This is the first book of this hilarious, highly illustrated early chapter book series.

When Milton Worthy learns his classroom’s pet ferret is the evil mastermind behind a dastardly plot for world domination, it’s more than just about any kid could handle. But then not every kid is the son of a member of the super-secret, super-awesome Society of Substitutes!

Now it’s up to Milton and his substitute teacher mom to save Beacher Elementary School before time runs out.

Critical Praise

"True to Katz’s style, the plot is funny, surprising, and a little bit silly. Checkboxes and interactive prompts at the end of each chapter inform readers of their progress and encourage them to keep going. Young readers will enjoy the antics in this chapter book, and teachers will enjoy reading it aloud." - School Library Journal (starred review)
