Review:
On the 30th floor of the wacky Wayside School is Mrs. Jewl's class. Sharie falls asleep and rolls out the window. Joe counts all wrong and gets the right answer. Calvin is sent to the 19th floor to deliver a note, but there is no 19th story- the builder forgot it. This nutty world is built on the sort of playful twists of logic that kids love.
