"Hi, My name is A.J. and I hate School" This is how most My Weird School books starts. But what kills me is I think deep down... A.J. really likes school. AND who wouldn't? With the case of crazier teachers, administrators and staff at Ella Mentary School, how can you help but having a good time at school.

Mrs Yonkers is the computer teacher...and a nerd and she wears a t-shirt that says "Nerds are cool"...she types emails with her toes so she can multi task and use your hands for other things. s

Dan Gutman has done such a fun thing with this series of books. (My Weird School). He's captured the tone and voice of the age group perfectly, his humor is targeted at kids, and like Bugs Bunny cartoons...there's always a bit of a laugh for the adults who are reading along. His prose is easy; constructed to allow young readers to access it, while still maintaining solid structure and vocabulary.

My first grade son has devoured this series on his own, and then brings them to us to read so we can

Realizing, of course, that this is written to amuse 2nd grade boys, I give it a 5 star rating. It has accomplished its purpose, plus more: it amused and amazed me! This is a funny series that so far has not strayed very deeply into 2nd grade boy body humor (unless you count the part where Ryan shows the guys how to hold a spoon with your nose). A definite MUST HAVE for all who teach (or aspire to understand) 2nd graders.

The second and third graders at my school love these books. They like that they are funny and use words like "shut up", "dumbhead," and "butt" as well as the exaggerated humor, some of which they don't always get. What I like about these books are the many idioms contained within each. It might be fun to make a class book about all the idioms and their meanings contained within each book...and you can also use this time, if you so choose, to address why using the words "shut up," "dumbhead," and ...more

The book Mrs. Yonkers is Bonkers by Dan Gutman is about the new teacher Mrs. Yonkers who is hired by Mr. Klutz. Her job is supposed to be about making new inventions that are healthy, but then A.J gets mad. So she decides to make an invention where you can put healthy food and get candy with the nutrients of healthy stuff. I really liked this book that's why I rated it a 5

Recommends it for: children starting to read chapter books
This is a fun story in the My Weird School series by Dan Gutman and Jim Paillot. The books are silly and somewhat redundant, but have a clever theme that is similar to the books in the Black Lagoon series by Mike Thaler.

This story features a wacky computer teacher who is brilliant, but odd. She is an inventor and loves technology. The book is a quick read and it's actually pretty entertaining.

I liked the book because I love computers and Mrs. Yonkers is the computer teacher. She can type with her feet {I meant Mrs. Yonkers.} Mrs. Yonkers invented helmets that made you feel like you were somewhere else.

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!

My kids thought this book was pretty funny, although I think I laughed out loud while reading more than either of them did as they read. Even without looking at the drawings that are placed throughout the text, I could easily imagine quirky, absent-minded, creative-inventor-type Mrs. Yonkers, and her overwhelming compulsion to

Caitlin doesn't care about these books, but Ian loved them at age 8. He still likes them now that he's 9, but is happy enough to get them from the library on occasion.
