The Beast in Ms. Rooney's Room by Patricia Reilly Giff is about a 2nd or 3rd grade reading level. It is part of The Kids of the Polk Street School book series.
Summary: It's September again. What does it mean for Richard "Beast" Best to be left back? It means being teased by his old friends while he's stuck facing the same old teacher in the same old classroom. He even has to take a special reading class with "babies" like Emily Arrow and Matthew Jackson. And just like last year, he can't help getting into trouble. But with the help of Mrs. Paris, the reading teacher, Beast starts to enjoy reading and just might find a way to help the second grade win the school banner for best class.
