The Crimes and Punishments of Miss Payne
From the moment Miss Payne (“The Hound of the Baskervilles, the English teacher from Hell. The Pitbull!”) walks into their classroom, Calma and Kiffo know she will have to go.

But the more they work to prove Miss Payne is crooked, the more evidence they find of her innocence. Creeping hell! A teacher this heinous has got to be guilty of something—right?
