All the kids from Wayside School had to spend 243 days in horrible schools while Wayside was closed to get rid of the infestation of cows! Now the kids are back and the fun begins again on every floor. Miss Mush has prepared a special lunch of baked liver in purple sauce and it is pet day on the 30th floor. There are dogs and cats and frogs and skunks and an orange named Fido, causing a terrible commotion. But the biggest surprise of all is that Mrs Jewls is expecting a baby and a substitute teacher is coming, and everyone knows what that means ...Wayside School is going to get a little stranger.

Reviews

Revolving around the substitute teachers that the students of this zany school must endure, the 30 stories here will delight devotees of the Wayside School; according to PW, Sachar's supply of plot twists and plays on words are "inexhaustible." Ages 8-12. (Feb.)

Praise for Louis Sachar: 'One of the few masters of American fiction' Independent on Sunday Praise for 'Holes': 'Magic and hard realism come crashing together. This is an extraordinary and unconventional novel' Observer 'An exceptionally good novel' Sunday Times Praise for 'Sideways Stories from Wayside School': 'Thirty clever, fast-moving stories that describe the bizarre events at Wayside School ... each story is refreshingly different' Guardian

Gr 3-6-It took 243 days to get rid of all the cows and now the world's wackiest school is open again. That may explain the coffee pots, potatoes, and pencil sharpeners flying out of the windows of Mrs. Drazil's class. Or the dogs, cats and skunks causing an uproar on the thirtieth floor. By Louis Sachar. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
