Publisher's Summary

In Lunchroom Tales, Bill Harley and his band - the Troublemakers - return to the Delaware Trails Elementary School where Bill once roamed the halls as a student. They kick off their show with the song "Everyone's a Little Bit Different" - but soon, memories get the best of Bill, and he begins to recount adventures and disasters from his former days of glory (or was it torture?). Meet Mr. Hambleman, the custodian (not janitor!) and Mrs. Nottingham, the terrifying 3rd grade teacher (are teachers human, or are they a different species?), explore super cool places like the back of the bus, and enjoy Harley's engaging recreation - through song and story - of what it feels like to be a kid in school.

Wonderful listen!

People have been telling me that I need to listen to Bill Harley - and they were right. Fun listening with Bill talking and singing. I was brought back to third grade and the wonderful awful teachers I had.

More sweet nostalgia than funny...

I am used to the more silly stories by Bill Harley so these stories - which are more nostalgic than funny - came as a bit of a surprise to me. Still enjoyable, though. I don't typically consider myself a softie but teared up during the beautiful (and sad) Kevin story. Great conversation piece for the kids and I. And totally get the teacher's viewpoint during Mrs. Nottingham story.
