This is the seventh edition of Dan Gutman’s My Weird School series of books that I think kids will love. I found myself laughing out loud when the kids from this school describe what they think is really happening in this school. In this edition, the boys in class all fall in love with the school nurse, Mrs. Cooney, but as they spend more time in the nurse’s office they begin to think she may be living a secret life, as a spy. The illustrations by Jim Paillot add to the humor with a

The Weird School Saga is getting more in touch with its odd side as it goes along. AJ is having a crush on his new school nurse, Mrs. Cooney, who is already married (hence the "Mrs.") yet his plans for romantic conquest thru nurse nuptials will not be denied! He still won't be kissed since, like most literary boys since Huck Finn, he finds the art of CPR (which fictional nurses have been depicted as being proficient at) distasteful at best. He needs a life--STAT!!! So controversial in its indire ...more

Recommends it for: children starting to read chapter books
We started reading the books in the My Weird School series by Dan Gutman and Jim Paillot together during storytime, but our oldest started reading ahead into the series on her own and our youngest seemed to lose interest. So now, I am just reading to catch up with our oldest.

This story focuses on the boys' fascination with the school nurse, Mrs. Cooney. Somehow the class becomes convinced that she is a spy. This is such a fun story and the kids have wild imaginations. I really enjoyed the part

I just loved this edition in the "My Weird School" series by Dan Gutman. The main character, A.J., a second-grader, hates school but always seems to have a lot of fun retelling his school adventures. In this piece, A.J. has discovered that the school nurse Mrs. Cooney is beautiful, and he has a major crush! The book unfolds as several boys attempt to fake illness in order to go visit Mrs. Cooney's office, only to be given rather bizarre "cures" for their imaginary sicknesses. Everyone jumps to t ...more

*"We caught you, like a rat in a trap!"
I like this expression. This is very serious situation but there is a little sence of humor. I like his expression.

This story is based on school, so it is very easy to understnad and Icould enjoy reading. I was very surprised at the word count at first, but I could keep reading smoothly. I also like very intesting school story.

This series is great for slow readers. Each chapter is funny and direct. In this one, there's moments when grown-ups use words that the main character doesn't understand, creating humor, but also sympathy, since the kid reading it may not know that word either. The know-it-all girl, Andrea, gets better treatment in this one than the other books in the series. But generally these books are aimed at boys and boys only.
I did find myself chuckling at some of the humor, but I was still turned off by the way the characters' behavior is presented as acceptable. Kids will definitely find it funny and probably identify with the antics and thoughts of these schoolkids, but I wouldn't want them to emulate it. Moves quickly, lots of action, and plot development is decent. There are better choices, but there are also worse choices. Good for kids who like funny reads.

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!

This time it is Mrs. Cooney, the school nurse who is loony. She has some pretty interesting and humorous remedies designed to weed out the children, like A.J., who are faking illness to get out of class. The usual group of students decide, based on these odd treatments and the fact that she is always gathering information, that she is a spy.

I still can't actually recommend these books for 2nd graders, their target audience, because the main character hates school so much.

The book Mrs. Cooney is loony was awesome. The writing was effective. The strength about the book is that characters knew who was actually the nurse in the book. The weakness about the book is that the book never said if character nurse went to jail.I would recommend this book to a classmate because I bet they would like spy books. If there was more parts of the series I would read it because since I like spy books and the spies have secrets.

I got the book because in the other books I've read it's been talking about her. I wondered what the book would be like. If I was in high school my favorite class would probably be health. Mrs. Cooney is the school nurse. Three of the boys in class were pretending to be sick so they could see Mrs. Cooney.

This book offers a mix comedy, laughter,and a story that will cheer you up.My favorite part was when Mr.klutz was wearing a wig,also A.J was mad at his friends because they said they wanted to marry Mrs.Cooney which I don't know why since there in second grade.This book is funny,very funny... Heh,heh.
Oct 04, 2012 Gretchen rated it did not like it
Maybe 1.5 stars. Some funny instances, such as the confusion over vowel movements, but overall, interactions between the kids were a bit mean-spirited . I didn't like how they kept using the word dumbhead or how AJ kept thinking how he'd like to punch Andrea. I wouldn't want to hear it from real children, and I don't like it coming from fictional children.

This book speaks about the school's doctor, called Ms Looney. When someone fell bad and he go to her office, instead to give to them some antidote, she let play them to game, she is sure that this metod function.
The first chapter is about how Aj thinks math is hard.Math is not hard at all of allyou have to do is add subtrac,Multply Divide.I know how to do all of that is pretty easy to me but the more your grow up the more it gets harder thats what my farther told me.The next chapter is about.

The students at Ella Mentry School think that Mrs. Cooney, the school nurse, is a spy- after three of the boys decide they are in love with her. The evidence stacks against her until the students find out the truth. Lots of students faking illness to go see the nurse and get out of class.
