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 SCHOOL, one of the most popular Camelot books ever. "Rib-tickling...sure-to-please..." -- Kirkus

      SPOILER ALERT!!! Wayside School is a 30-story tall building, but there is no 19th story. Miss Zarves teaches the class on the 19th story. There is no Miss Zarves. Or is there? Allison comes to school and no one sees her. They can't hear her ether. An old lady that can see Alison comes and tells Allison to come to her classroom. The old lady's name is Miss Zarves! You will never believe the truth of that classroom! This book has a sad ending (but don't worry, there's a third book). I would recommend this book.

                  Wayside School is a funny story to read. I hope you will enjoy it too! My favorite part was when Wayside School got shut down by cows.
