Sideways Stories from Wayside SchoolWayside School Is Falling DownWayside School Gets a Little StrangerAnd now also Wayside School Beneath the Cloud of Doom, the brand-new, fourth installment in the series, and the first in twenty-five years!
The wacky school--and unusual characters--first portrayed in Sideways Stories from Wayside School is back. But in the sequel, the students venture further than they dared before--Myron walks down to the basement, Allison finds the nonexistent 29th floor, Mrs. Jewls drops a brand-new computer from the 30th floor, Jenny reads a story backwards, and a substitute teacher turns the tables on the class. Sachar has written 30 tongue-in-cheek, slightly madcap stories that are sure to appeal to the slightly caustic humor that is typical of middle readers. Illustrations not seen by PW. Ages 8-12.
Logan, age 6: I loved this book because the characters were really funny. Kathy was mean but I thought that was funny.
Jill, mom: We’ve read two Wayside School books so far and I love sharing this book with my own children. For years, I’ve read this series to my third graders. It’s been fun reliving it with my own kids! Louis Sachar is hilarious!
I loved this book so much. I would recommend it to anybody!
It was a nice book I like how you were the yard teacher as the author.. - Charlie age 9
