I liked the book because Officer Spence was aresting people for no reason that is why the title is
Officer Spence Makes No Sense! And he was aresting all the teachers but A.J was happy becuase that means no more school and then Mr. Spence let them go because oh wait I should not say that would be a spoiler alert.

It was a little bit crazy because the security guard thought everyone was stealing sandwiches, but you'll never guess who stole them! I'm not spoiling it. That was the only good part.

Freeze Dirt Bag... and read this book.

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 6 and 7-year-olds love this book series. They're a fun read for adults and at the appropriate reading level for the girls to read on their own (with a little occasional struggle!). Great introduction to grammatical functions such as asterisks and hyphenation, and a comical narrator voice. Love these!

My youngest keeps checking these books out. They are fun on the tongue and full of laughs and hilarity. Good to read aloud, but I think most kids who catch the bug will read them on their own.

There are 3 series at least of several books each including My Weird School, My Weirder School, and My Weird School Daze.

It was crazy the officer just kept arresting the teachers because he thought it was them but at the end it was him because Mr. Brad found out that officer spenses mom didn't let him peanut butter like the other kids. I loved the book i think this would be good for everybody

I really liked this book!

It was really funny and crazy. My favorite part as when Officer Spence said, "Freeze Dirtbag!" It was so funny I kept on repeating "FREEZE DIRTBAG!" It was hilarious! (8 year old, 3rd grader)

“I want you to open that cabinet over the sink slowly,” Officer Spence ordered. “And then back away. No false moves, Cooney!” Mrs. Cooney went and opened the cabinet over the sink. There were some bandages in there and some bottles of aspirin. “Aha!” Officer Spence hollered. “Aspirin! Can you get that stuff in a drugstore?” “Well, yes, of course,” Mrs. Cooney said. “Just as I suspected!” Officer Spence shouted. “You’re a drug dealer!” “WHAT?!” “You’re handing out drugs to innocent children!” Officer Spence yelled as he wheeled in a portable jail cell. “You should be ashamed of yourself. How do you sleep at night?” “I take NyQuil,” Mrs. Cooney said.” 2 likes
