This book is part of Gutman's third series, My Weirder School. Mr. Burke is the school groundskeeper, responsible for mowing, trimming, shoveling sidewalks, etc. He is fired by the Mayor due to budget cuts. The Mayor also fires many other teachers due to his cuts, which is part of his plan for
Then Mr. Burke discovers gliver, a blend of gold and silver, under the monkey bars. All the school staff quit doing their regular jobs and begin mining.

I don't enjoy any of Gutman's book that
When the mayor comes to Ella Mentry school to announce budget cuts, he fires the teachers, shuts down the music and art programs and threatens to sell the coffee maker on eBay. But when Mr. Burke, the lawn maintenance guy, also gets the ax, he takes matters into his own hands. #4 in the My Weirder School series, this silly easy read would tickle the early elementary readers. Fun series.

cross posted to CHECK IT OUT!

Oldest read this and gave it three stars. He tried to give it one and then I went over what the rating scale meant again. If he grows up to be a critic of any sort, the people are screwed.

I liked this book because they go mining in the playground and find silver and gold but it wasn't actually silver and gold they just tricked Mia. Dr Carbles

There is a whole series of this books that are funny and relatable to everyday life of a elementary school kid
Parts of this book were hysterical... than other parts crossed that fine line from humorous into stupid town.

Budget cuts are effecting everyone, including the staff and students at Ele Mentary School. Mayor Hubble has called an assembly to discuss all the cuts that are needed to help balance the budget. Some of these outlandish cuts just won't do. How can a classroom of students all share 1 pencil? Post-It notes instead of toilet paper? No water for the water fountains? Will this work? If it do

I'm giving it 3 stars as a compromise. For me, it's less than 3 stars, but I predict children would find this funny and not mind the combination of goofy humor with somewhat pointless plot. I know many children who would give this more than 3 stars, especially boys.

This book was amazing and it had a lot of funny was good because I understood the book and I thought it was cool when they found gold and silver witch they called Gilver

Children will like the books in the My Weirder School series, although teachers might not like the name-calling. The book is in the tall tale genre. It features persons digging for gilver (gold/silver).
I've been waiting for this book to come out since October of September and jut finally came out. I’ve read this book in one day. The day was February 10th, 2012.
Okay. Some funny moments but some was kind of repetitious. However, kids might get a kick from that. I'll still be recommending Dan Gutman to kids any old way
This book was very cute. My son didn't stop laughing from start to finish. very cleverly written.
i liked the part when Mr.Burke challenged Mr.Klutz to a lawn mower race.
