The Landry News
top Fifth-grader Cara Landry is an aspiring journalist who has created her own newspaper, The Landry News. In her first edition, she writes a harsh editorial that accuses Mr. Larson, her burned-out language arts teacher, of not doing his job. However, her criticism has positive results: It inspires Mr. Larson to become a real teacher again -- one who encourages his class to turn The Landry News into a classroom newspaper. But when the school principal uses something that’s been printed in the paper to try to get Mr. Larson fired, the whole town gets involved, and Cara and her classmates learn about the First Amendment -- and the importance of tempering truth with mercy.作者簡介Andrew Clements is the celebrated author of the Christopher Award-winning novel Frindle, The Landry News, The Janitor’s Boy, the Jake Drake series, The School Story, A Week in the Woods, and many other books for children.
