The new teacher at St. Barty's makes his first appearance in a very unusual way. And of course, he's no ordinary teacher--however hard he may try to be. This is bad news for Hamish Bigmore, the class nuisance, who's been getting his own way for far too long. When Hamish is being a pest in a nature study class, "Mr. Magic" takes immediate action--but things go disastrously wrong.
