There was a terrible mistake. Wayside School was supposed to have been built with thirty classrooms all next to each other in a row. Instead, it was built with the thirty classrooms all on top of each other – thirty stories high! That may be why all kinds of strange stuff happens at Wayside School. Especially, on the thirteenth floor. It is a school full of unusual characters too. Mrs Gorf the meanest teacher in the world. Terrible Todd who always gets sent home early. John who can only read upside down. It is a crazy mixed up school brilliantly brought to life by the irresistible Louis Sachar.
From the Author
Third graders love hearing Wayside School
Each year I read aloud the Wayside School books. Sometimes I change the name of the characters to one of the kids in my class. We have alot of fun with the stories. We chose to feature L. Sachar during Children’s Book Week this Year. He really turns the kids on to literature! –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
