The Wacky World of
Wayside School

Watch closely, said Mrs. Jewls. You can learn much faster using a computer instead of paper and pencil. Then she pushed the new computer out the window The children all watched it fall thirty floors and smash against the sidewalk. See? said Mrs. Jewls. That's gravity! I've been trying to teach you about gravity, but the computer showed you a lot quicker!

That's the way things happen at Wayside School. There are 29 kids in Mrs. Jewls's class and this book is about all of them. There is Todd, who got in trouble every day . until he got a magic dog; Paul, whose life was saved by Leslie's pigtails; Ron, who dared to try the cafeteria's Mushroom Surprise and all the others who help turn a day at Wayside School into one madcap adventure after another. But, after the things that happened in Sideways Stories from Wayside School, what would you expect?

The extraordinary thirty-story school and its zany inhabitants are back in the long-awaited sequel to the classic SIDEWAYS STORIES FROM WAYSIDE SCHOL, one of the most popular Camelot books ever. Rib-tickling.sure-to-please. -- Kirkus

   Great for 3rd-4th grade readers. Imaginative stories.
My 4th grader enjoyed reading this, and even though she's only a few years old, she can read it aloud to her younger siblings. It's her third and final book in the series, and she said it was just as good as the other two. Her favorite part of the book was chapter 8. Innocent and imaginative stories told with great compassion.
   These were recommended by a friend for my daughter
Jennette Tamayo, a friend of mine, said: "They were recommended by a nurse. The problem Mrs Clinton was having was that her daughter has a funny bone and found most books too boring. They were so pleased with the results that they asked for more, Vazzi said. The 9-year-old has a very good memory, reads them over and over, and finds them hilarious. There's also a Christmas book out there that I've read that was also very witty and gag-filled.
   Not the original drawings, such a disappointment.
The first picture shown for this book is not the actual cover of the product sold. I've read these books as a kid and just ate up the wacky stories. The illustrations by Pauley are just as nostalgic to me as the words. I didn't click through the pictures of the cover before I bought it, so I guess it's my fault, but come on, don't put a picture of the original book as the cover picture for the product if that's not what the customer is getting. I'm bummed that my daughter won't get to read this awesome book with the same illustrations as I did. She has to look at these stupid, cartoony ones that neuter the eeriness and excitement of the book. Do yourself a favor, if you're a Louis Sachar fan from when you read these stories as a kid, and you can find one with the original drawings.
   Poor fulfillment
The book was in poor condition when we found it, and we couldn't afford to replace it. The second one I bought was in good condition, the third one was slightly more expensive. He said: "I am very disappointed.
   Way too small a size for comfortable reading
The book is too small for a child to comfortably read. It is smaller than a standard size, which you can't tell from the description.
   Sachar gets the kid humor
There are several Sideways Stories that are just too ridiculous to be true. Some authors try really hard to be funny and end up throwing a lot of fart jokes and booger references in, thinking that will get the laughs, but there isn't many who actually understand that great mix of gross-out, absurd, and layered humor that really grabs children, Eisenberg said. The Sideways Stories are generally centered around really silly things that happen to students and teachers in a very weird school, and the situations are not realistic but you can tell from the way they're written that they're not supposed to be there. This is not one of my favorite works of Sachar's, because really his greatest strength is the funny-yet-poignant more realistic kids' story, but it is highly recommended for fans of Captain Underpants.
   Nostalgic and Fun: A Story for Every Age
In the second grade, my teacher read them to us. She started with this one and moved to the others, she said. It's one of those movies where you just can't put it down. Each story is divided into 30 chapters, one for each of the four main characters. The book basically focuses on whimsical and witty stories about elementary school children in a slightly dated time. If you were a kid and you remember then or even the 1990s, you will enjoy this book. I've read it twice, both by Robert Penn Warren. The other two books in the trilogy are "The Whole Nine Yards" and "Sideways Stories." This last focuses on the students, and the one before takes what they're in this book and makes it even weirder. These books take me back to when I was a teenager. The illustrations are also very good, the book says. HBO said it will show some of the best comedy sketches ever created.
   Doesn’t skip a beat
If you love the original Wayside, then you're going to LOVE this. Absolutely hilarious and picks up with the same wonderful humor as the originals, it's like not a year went by, much less 40 years! Whether you're a die-hard or just plain bored, your kids will enjoy this.
   Clever and funny book that keeps you entertained
I've read the entire book, but I'm not that big of a fan. It was a total blast, and my son started reading it in 3rd grade. The book is short and witty, and includes lots of humor.
   Second verse, just as good as the first!
Often times the sequel books aren't as good as the original but this was. My kids love intelligent humor and these are full of it. Can't wait to read the third.
