I enjoyed this book in its entirety but it was a little predictable. however, a funny read

This book has been in my classroom for years! Anyone who knows me also knows that the title would appeal to me, so why did it take me 7 years to read it?

Oh well, it's done. I can now answer they question, "Why Did the Underweard Cross the Road?"
You'll have to read to find out, but I'm hoping my students will enjoy the read as well as the answer to the question as well!

I really like most of Korman's books. This is a cute little book written on a 4th grade level about three kids who are trying to do good deeds, but everything turns out wrong.

I read this with my kids and we loved it! Gordan Korman is fast becoming one of our favorite authors for kids. We laughed so hard at the kindergarten training chapter.
very funny book really good for new readers i love all of gorgon kormans books but this one is by far the best

Korman wrote his first book, "This Can't be Happening at Macdonald Hall", when he was 12 years old, for a coach who suddenly found himself teaching 7th grade English. He later took that episode and created a book out of it, as well, in "The Sixth Grade Nickname Game", wherein Mr. Huge was based on that 7th grade teacher.

Korman moved to New York City, where he studied film and film writing. While i...more
