3 Gladiator by Greg Vanno

Little Johnny is growing up to become 'That Johnny'. Miss Symes, teaching enough history that kids know where Latin came from, had been warned about 'That Johnny'. But for teachers, every moment is a teaching moment. Elspeth, the girl next door, who lives across the street, if you climb the fence at Mary's house, could write a note and tape it up and open it tomorrow and it will ALL BE THAT JOHNNY'S FAULT! What could go wrong? Possibly Chapter 3 of the Elspeth Chronicles.
