Sideways Stories From Wayside School (Wayside School #1)
There was a terrible mistake - Wayside School was built with one classroom on top of another, thirty stories high (The builder said he was sorry.) Maybe that's why all kinds of funny things happened at Wayside-especially on the thirteenth floor.
Sarah Montambo Powell
And this was my expression throughout the period when I was reading the book.
I had so many expectations from it and maybe that led to the epic fall. I so wanted to like it. I wanted another Wimpy Kid in my kitty on which I can fall back on whenever I need.
But this is no Wimpy Kid, oh hell, it sucks as intensely as the Fudge kid in Fudge-a-mania.
Here are some drudgery tales served on a please-lik...more
Surprisingly, I have mixed feelings for this book that the kids find so hilarious. It’s a different kind of humor that is just wacky, ir...more

I think Mrs.Gorf is a really mean teacher, because she turned her students into an apple, when they did nothing wrong.

Mrs. Jewls is a kind teacher, she thinks that her students are terribly cute. And she plans to give them a banana, because she thought that they look like a monkey.

Joe is a boy who can't count properly.I think it's funny when he can only count backwards, but will still get the correct answer when Mr's Jewls ask him q...more
unbelievably great. it cracks me up regulary ("take a train, peanut brain!" being one of my favorite lines). children's books are fantastic bedtime readings - they are usually short, relatively simple, and - in the case of the whole wayside collection - ridiculously entertaining and clever. i fear the day this becomes a film (unless my college roommate writes and directs it) because all of the kids are such unique and well developed characters, it has to be incred...more
One particularly bizarre, hilarious passage:
"In Mrs. Jewls' class there were three children named Eric: Eric Fry, Eric Bacon, and Eric Ovens. They were known throughout the school for being fat. Eric Fry sat at this end...more
Each story focuses primarily on a different character so trying to lump all of the characters together into a single review category is difficult. The two character persistent throughout the book, Mrs. Jewls and Louis, are interestin...more

Note: There is no 19th story. Period.
I may just pick up a copy for my niece or nephew this Christmas, since I never like to get them the stuff everyone else has. It would also make a...more
Sideways Stories of Wayside School
I like this book because each chapter had a different characters story. Why it is called Sideways Stories of Wayside School is because when the workers built the school they made a big mistake. Instead of building a flat 30 classroom school, the workers made the mistake of building it 30 stories high with a classroom on each floor. In each chapter there is a story about one of the children or teachers at Wayside School. Some of the stori...more
