        This book will make you laugh a lot! The story is about a class full of students and one of their teacher's Mrs. Jewels thinks they are a bunch of monkeys and craziness takes place in their classroom. Read it and you won't be disappointed.

          This is a funny book that makes no sense. It has a good humor and is weird in a nice way. I would recommend this book because its really funny.

              This book was hilarious and I loved all the different stories. I like how Louis Sachar made all the students in the story have different personalities. The book is very good and I was happy when i found out their was a series! This author really put some creativity in this book!

                      I read Sideways stories by Luis Sachar. Its genre is fantasy because Ms. Gorf is able to turn kids into apples. One day she tried, to turn a kid into an apple but the kid held a mirror up and instead she converted herself into an apple. There is something different about this novel, it doesn't matter if you skip from chapter one to chapter ten because each chapter is a different story. I liked it even though there were hard word it was still easy
