Accidentally built sideways and standing thirty stories high (the builder said he was very sorry for the mistake), Wayside School has some of the wackiest classes in town, especially on the thirtieth floor. That’s where you’ll meet Bebe, the fastest draw in art class; John, who only reads upside down; Myron, the best class president, ever; and Sammy, the new kid—he’s a real rat.
More than nine million readers have laughed at the wacky stories of Wayside School. So what are you waiting for? Come visit Wayside School!

Ratings and Reviews from the Librarians
Lorna rated it ★★★★★ and said “I read this out loud to my grandson, age 9. We were both entertained by the very clever stories. Favorite quote – ‘You need a reason to be sad. You don’t need a reason to be happy.'”
