Sideways Stories from Wayside School by Louis Sachar is one of my favorite children's books.
Wayside School is a silly school that holds thirty classrooms, thirty stories high. The students in Mrs. Jewls class are on the thirtieth story. I love the kids in the class, but my favorite story is Mrs. Gorf. She is an evil teacher that hates children and turns them into apples. Everyone thinks she is a wonderful teacher because she always has so many apples on her desk. Everyone knows that kids only bring apples to good teachers, right? The apples and the last few children fight back in a surprising way.
The stories are short, have great illustrations by Julie Brinckloe, and are funny. It is a great book for kids just getting into chapter books or reluctant readers who have low reading levels. It's also good just to enjoy as a quick read with your favorite child - my favorite way to read it!
