As heard by kids everywhere on the Echo Dot Kids Edition, the Classroom 13 books are a hilarious new chapter book series-perfect for reluctant readers and fans of Roald Dahl, Captain Underpants, and Sideways Stories from Wayside School.
The Unlucky Lottery Winners of Classroom 13 is the first title in a series about the students of a very unlucky classroom. The easy-to-read chapters are full of humor, action, secret codes, and fun-and will prompt hours of conversation among friends, families, and classmates. The final chapter encourages young readers to write their own chapter and send it in to the author, Honest Lee.
When unlucky teacher Ms. Linda LaCrosse wins the lottery, she shares her winnings with her class-giving each student over a BILLION DOLLARS!
You might think this was nice, but it was not. It was a nasty idea. With great money comes awful allergies, terrible taxes, violent volcanoes, and other pesky problems. As the students of Classroom 13 are about to learn, winning the lottery is not always lucky.
After perennially unlucky teacher Linda LaCrosse's lottery ticket nets her $28 billion, she splits her winnings with her class, per a contract they signed. In the subsequent chapters, the authors cheekily explore how the children use their enormous windfalls: Emma Embry buys "every cat in the state" and moves to an island with them (too bad she's allergic), popular Jayden Jason James clones himself, and class hamster Earl shreds and pees on his check. Keeping the dozens of students straight isn't particularly easy but neither is it the point: these brief and funny fantasies revel in the tantalizing possibilities of insta-wealth.

Good book but...
I think it could be a little bit more difficult to read, cause I am going in to middle school and I would like something a little more challenging. I do like this book because it was a good and funny book for me to wake up and read.
I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is THE BEST book ever! It is soooooo awesome. I read this one and now I am going to read the whole entire classroom 13 series. Definitely read it too.
