Worst Teacher Ever

Dave and his pet gecko, Sticky, hate Dave’s sarcastic, dissection-obsessed teacher, Veronica Krockle. She never misses a day of class. Never. Until today. Dave wasn’t the only kid in class who was excited for their substitute. After all, anyone in the world would be better than Ms. Krockle. Or so they thought.


Suspicious Substitute

When Dr. Schwartz arrives, Dave feels like something isn’t quite right. He constantly asks the class about pet geckos: who has one? Specifically, which boys have one? The only gecko-obsessed person he knows is Damien Black, the evil, treasure hunting, mansion building, dragon training, children hating, Master of Disguise. But most of all, Damien Black is a villain. And he’s after the boy known as the Gecko…a.k.a Dave.


The Powerband

Dave has the one thing Damien Black really wants: his powerband. Damien has all the devices that go with the powerband except for one: Wall-Walker. And Dave is not afraid to use it. Thus the name Gecko. But then Dave and Sticky realize something. What if Damien kidnapped Ms. Krockle to get to Dave? Is she safe? Is she trapped in his mansion? Despite all of Dave’s instincts, he knows that he must rescue Ms. Krockle.


The Bottom Line

The Gecko & Sticky books by Wendelin Van Draanen are quick and funny stories. You’ll love how Dave battles Damien and his band of idiotic thieving brothers. Tell us what you think of The Gecko & Sticky: Sinister Substitute in our comments section below.

Yes but I don't support it. It's not only the offender who suffers but those who, even though this person probably killed tons of people, are part of his family. They have to go through a lot when someone they love dies because someone basically murdered their sibling, parent , husband, wife, cousin or friend. So in the end more than a few people are left with broken hearts.
