Bailey School Kids Books 1-4

The Bailey School Kids series by Debbie Dadey and Marcia Thorton Jones

A/N: Because of the length of the series, there will be ongoing mini summaries of the books.

Books 1-4 Summaries:

Vampires Don’t Wear Polka Dots (1)

New teacher from Transylvania who is allergic to garlic…

Werewolves Don’t Go To Summer Camp (2)

Very hairy camp counselor who likes his meat very rare, but is allergic to wolfsbane and mistletoe…

Santa Claus Doesn’t Mop Floors (3)

New janitor…his eyes twinkle, beard as white as snow, shakes when he laughs, always making notes about how the children are behaving…

Leprechauns Don’t Play Basketball (4)

O’Grady likes to play tricks and always carries a bag of jewels around…


I had read some of these when I was in elementary school, and found some of them when I was browsing through a used book store. I researched the series (over 60 books in total!) and have started inter-library loaning them. One thing I really like about this series is at the end, there is never definitive answer on whether or not Mrs. Jeepers really is a vampire; O’Grady really is a Leprechaun, etc. It’s a fun, quick series that gives me a little bit of escape from my graduate textbooks!
