I noticed Glee used one of the same jokes. I watching the show (Season three, Episode two) and heard the joke, "What is the capitol of Ohio?" "O." Then later that same day I read the same joke in the book (which is at least twenty years older than the TV show, of course.) LOL
Anyway, definitely recommend this, but it is second in the series, so read the first one first.
Continuing with the Wayside Series, what’s interesting with the second book is that, while the majority of chapters are still character sketches, there is more overlap and continuation of conflicts among the chapters. (The same is true for the third book as well).
Students that liked the first book will undoubtedly like the second and third books as well (however, usually disappointments about with the fourth book)....more

These...more

"Who would like the triangle?" asked Mrs. Jewls.
Joe raised his hand, and Mrs. Jewls gave it to him.
"Why is it called a triangle?" asked Joe.
"I don't know," said Mrs. Jewls.
"Maybe because it's shaped like a triangle," suggested John.
"No, that can't be it," said Mrs. Jewls. "Then the tambourine would have to be called a circle."
"Maybe it was invented by a person named Joe Triangle," said Rondi.
"That's probably it," said Mrs. Jewls. She held...more

Does anyone else remember that heavenly smell of newsprint in school when you fill out your order form for your book club? And your moms neatly signed check in your chubby fist, paper clipped to your book mark sized list ready to turn in. *batts eyes* And the excitement when you see piles and piles of books rubber banded together knowing your about to get your hands on your own stack. Sorry, got lost in a moment.
