Review:
Surely, Wayside School was already strange enough. The builders built a thirty-story school sideways with the rooms piled one on top of another - except for the nineteenth floor where Miss Zarves teaches class. There is no nineteenth floor, and there is no Miss Zarves. Nevertheless, there is a thirteenth floor where nice Mrs. Jewls presides over her eccentric pupils. Mrs. Jewls, however, takes a maternity leave. Before she returns with her little stranger, Wayside School gets a little stranger. While reading this ridiculously funny book, children will not only be laughing, they will be learning.
