The book is about a new teacher entered the school, she is a health teacher. She changed the lunch to disgusting burgers, and she took out the soda machine. And when a kid eats a junk food, she quickly catches it, and throws it. So this 2nd graders went to the garbage to find any junk food. And the 2nd graders saw the health teacher eating junk food. I liked this book because it has a lot of funny scenes. I recommend this book to the 3rd graders because it easy and funny.

Ella Mentry School has a new health teacher, and she's out to make A.J. an example to other students by "helping" him eat healthy.

My six-and-a-half-year-old son and I have been reading through this series together. He laughs a lot and really likes hearing about A.J.'s adventures. So far, this is the one I like least. Ms. Leakey was a little too freaky in her harassment of students, especially of A.J.

An eccentric health teacher descends upon Ella Mentry School to teach healthy eating habits, by force if necessary. This humorous tale uses a lot of exaggerated superlative language like, “the most amazing thing in the history of the world,” which is repeated about a dozen times throughout the course of the book. The adult characters do some weird stuff, such as build a robot which drinks beer in class, but this is offset by one of the characters wondering out loud if these things are really app ...more

I understand that eating healthy is good for you, but Ms. Leakey went over board. Like taking the twinkie out of AJ's mouth, and jumping from under his bed to take away his candy bar. My parents allows me to snack healthy like eating celery sticks with ranch dressing, eating fruit snacks and fruits but not all of my snacks are healthy. I sometimes eat candy bars and cup cakes but not a whole lot. In all schools their should be healthier eating but not like Ms. Leakey was doing. Just like Andrea ...more
I thought that ms. leaky IS freaky. She made everyone throw away their candy and other junk food into a dumpster where ms. leaky is eating everything they through away. She is nuts!!! And then she opens a fast food resturant where kids go and eat broccali burgers, potato fries, and other wacky foods. And she is also follwing A.j! She follows him to his house shere she hides under his bed, she follows him to the store so he can't buy candy, and other places!!!!!!!!! A.j thinks sheis totally crazy ...more

I love the My Weird School series by Dan Gutman. I just feel that some of the material becomes unnecessary and at times it is inappropriate. For example in this read, the use of beer and cigarettes from the robot it too much. Why not use pop and candy? Why do we use the term stupid, when it's not used properly in today's society. I love the humor in this series, but for young readers that are advanced readers it becomes too much. My child is in the second grade reading on a 4th grade level and w ...more

Dan Gutman understands young reader’s humor and has created a fantastic book formula to draw in even the most reluctant of readers. The My Weird School series is perfect for students to practice their reading skills with its repetitive yet hysterical narrative and story lines. But don’t mention that part to your kiddos, they might run away in fear they could learn something. A must have collection for any grade school library or classroom!

I liked this book. It was about trying to eat healthy, but A.J. loves candy.

My favorite part of the book was when A.J. got to hit the punching bag and then candy starting falling out of it. The teacher was mad because she wanted him to eat healthy. My lease favorite part of the book was when Ms. Leakey opens the restaurant McLeakey's. Kids don't want to eat vegetarian burgers and tofu.
I think kids who eat junk food would like this book. It is funny to read about being unhealthy.
Ms. Leaky is the health teacher (well, they think she is). She says no candy allowed even for desserts in lunchboxes. She isn't the real health teacher. If they brought candy to school she threw it in the dumpster by the school and since she wasn't the real health teacher, she was really just hiding in the dumpster and eating all the candy she threw away.
Genre: young reader
Part of a series called My weird school daze that is fun and quick to read. The story uses current language and refernces and connects with today's youth. The story is written well and keeps the reader entertained.

Ms. Leakey is pretty crazy because every time she came into aj's class she would run out of the class saying things like
"I better go do my push-ups"
