I borrowed this ebook bundle because we can't keep the My Weird School books on the shelf at the library and I wanted to see what they were like.

I read Mrs. Roopy is Loopy! from Dan Gutman’s My Weird School series. The series follows a boy named A.J. who claims to hate school. Mrs. Roopy, the new librarian at Ella Mentry School, “invites” famous historical figures and nursery rhyme characters to the library to encourage her students to read. The students suspect that these guest speakers are in fact Mrs. Roopy in disguise. They decide to investigate, and are determined to find out if Mrs. Roopy is crazy or just a devoted librarian.
I got this e-book bundle on sale and read through the 4 books because they fly off the shelf at the elementary school. I thought they were a bit formulaic, and the characters were one-dimensional. Some of it was cute, and I don't think they're a bad influence or anything, but I don't see myself reading any more of the series. It's just nice to know what the kids are reading.

“She looked like she might run out of the room crying like she usually does for no reason.”
“When the blood rushes to my head, it helps me think.” Well, I know that blood rushing to your head doesn’t help you grow hair, because Mr. Klutz had no hair on his head at all. He was bald as a balloon.”More quotes…
