Where is My Teacher? written by Dalal Ghanim Al-Roumaihi, and illustrated by Nikos Yanopulos, is filled with imaginative art and rhyming text. The drawings and words call to mind both movies and books. Witches, aliens, Tale of Despereaux, Mary Poppins, floating tables, falling umbrellas, fields of daisies, a humorous ice cream shop, The Lord of the Rings, and Alice in Wonderland all figure in this adventure. You might think that’s a lot to fit into one book, but the art makes it work. This teacher should be proud of her students’ ability to amuse themselves thinking up adventures for her when she is late to class. These students are the kind every teacher dreams of having – students who feel that the stories they read and see are part of their lives.

When their teacher is late for class, many students might think they have time for mischief. Not these students. They have too much fun with their imaginations and memories of good books and movies they’ve seen. They picture their teacher having some of their favorite fantastic adventures. She can join the Queen of Hearts playing croquet in Wonderland. Gollum can accuse her of taking his ring. A witch can turn her into a frog. She can even be turned into teacher-flavored ice cream. What we do know is that she is not in class and her students are able to recall their lessons to keep themselves busy. She must be a very good teacher. In Where is My Teacher? Nikos Yanopulos’ art turns these students’ thoughts into vivid drawings. Dalal Ghanim Al-Roumaihi provides rhyming text to accompany them. Recommended for children who love stories they’ve read or seen, and the families that read to them.
