My daughter and I took turns reading chapters of Louis Sachar books to each other, and we both really liked them. The stories are all a little nuts and the cleverness works for both young and older readers. Sachar writes well and the books are all quite smart and funny. Highly recommended for 2nd through 5th grade readers and their parents who like reading with their kids.

This book was a little strange for me. This is because in a lot of the short stories there had no problem or solution which I have never read a book that didn't have a problem or solution. One of the short stories this boy's teacher told him to give this note to the teacher on the 15th floor. But there was no 15th floor and when the boy came back with the note the teacher said he had delivered the note. This book was a little bit strange for me that is why I think it should be a 3. Some of the stories were funny though. Like a girl had no use for her toes so she was trying to sell them for a nickel.

This story is about a weird mixed up school that was built thewrong way. That may be why all funny things happen at Waysideschool.Especiallyon the 13th floor. On the 13th floor there's Ms.Gorf who turns all of her students into apples. And there's Todd who always gets sent home early and John who can only read upside down and there's Sammy But he is really a dead rat. I love this story because there's some stuff that don't usually happen in our school. E ND

The "Wayside School" Trilogy are some of Louis Sachar's greatest books. He once said, "I don't write what I think kids will think is funny, I write what I think is funny." This really shows in this book. The humor is so off the wall, there is no way it was written as something kids think of as funny. Kids will think it is funny though, they will laugh out loud, just as I did

I think that this book is very interesting and you should also read its sequels, Wayside School Is Falling Down and Wayside School gets a Little Stranger. But I also think that there is something serious about these stories. Sometimes you can feel the author's opinion about something, or just start thinking. These books are something like nonsense poetry

My two older boys (7 and just 5) are crazy about this book. My 5 year is getting into reading and carries this book around with him. He reads me pieces in the car and whenever I will listen to him and he laughs about it while he's reading. My 7 year old read it over a year ago, but still remembers most of it. It's a crazy, cute book!

This book was first read to me in the first grade. I am now in 8th, and have read it at least a million times. It is a hillarious book that can help kids see how everyone is different. Besides that, it's just so darn funny. I have read many books by Louis Sachar, and in my opinion he is the best author ever.

This book is really funny, and I just want to keep on reading more and more about Wayside School. Thank goodness there are two more books in the series, or I'd be going crazy
