The Bloggins School boiler room isn't glamorous, but it's home-steamy-home for Martha Snapdragon, the janitor's daughter. This school is anything but normal: There are misbehaving dragons, dastardly dealings between the principal and the school bully, and a giant bejeweled spoon stuck in the bathroom wall! Martha thinks it's time for some big changes, but a mere fourth grader has no chance of budging the school hierarchy--or a giant spoon for that matter. Or does she?
Tony Johnston's funny, magical spoof of the legend of The Sword in the Stone is full of big laughs and conveys some poignant truths about teaching, leadership, and the responsibilities we have to one another.

Martha Snapdragon has no idea that she is destined for greatness one day. THE SPOON IN THE BATHROOM WALL by Tony Johnston tells the story of Martha and her experiences at Horace E. Bloggins Elementary School after a mysterious message appears on the wall. When she reads, "The King is Coming - And It's About Time," she doesn't really believe it.

Martha is a student at Horace E. Bloggins Elementary School. Her father, Luther Snapdragon, works as the school's janitor. Martha and her father are poor --- too poor to buy a house --- so they live in the boiler room at the school. Martha doesn't have much, but she and her father are happy most of the time. What Martha wants more than anything is to be a teacher one day like her magical teacher, Ferlin. She also wants her principal, Dr. Klunk, and his bratty son, Rufus, to quit bossing around her father.

When a mysterious gold spoon suddenly appears in the bathroom wall, Martha is curious. Then an even more unusual message appears declaring that whoever pulls the spoon out of the wall will be King of Bloggins. This causes all sorts of strange behavior among the students and faculty at Horace E. Bloggins Elementary. Will evil Dr. Klunk be able to pull the spoon out of the wall? Or worse, will his son Rufus be named King? Young readers will keep turning pages to find out.

Tony Johnston, a former fourth-grade teacher, has written many books for children. With her latest novel, A SPOON IN THE BATHROOM WALL, she has created a very likeable character. Young readers will identify with Martha Snapdragon if they have ever been picked on or made to feel small. Children will root for Martha to find a way out of her miserable existence.
