Editorial Reviews

Review

“Will surely tickle the funny bones.” -- School Library Journal

“Rib-tickling. Sure to please.” -- Kirkus Reviews

“Sachar is the reigning king of oddball humor. These linked stories are both bizarre and sublime.” -- Brightly

From the Back Cover

A Crazy Mixed-up School.

There'd been a terrible mistake. Wayside School was supposed to be built with thirty classrooms one on top of the other...thirty stories tall! (The builder said he was very sorry.)

That may be why all kinds of funny things happen at Wayside SChool...especially on the thirteenth floor. You'll meet Mrs. Gorf, the meanest teacher of all, terrible Todd, who always gets sent home early, and John who can read only upside down--along with all the other kids in the crazy mix-up school that came out sideways. But you'll never guess the truth about Sammy, the new kid...or what's in store for Wayside School on Halloween!

There was a terrible mistake-Wayside School was built with one classroom on top of another, thirty stories high! (The builder said he was sorry.) Maybe that's why all kinds of funny things happened at Wayside-especially on the thirteenth floor.

Louis Sachar was born in New York. He was inspired to write children's books after working as a teacher's aide to gain extra credit. After graduation he worked in a sweater warehouse in Connecticut and wrote at night. He was soon fired from that job and moved onto law school where in his first week of study Sideways Stories From Wayside School was published. In 2000 Louis Sacher wrote Holes which became both an instant classic and a film starring Sigourney Weaver. Holes was his first book to be published in the UK and continues to prove popular among younger readers. Once Louis Sachar begins writing a new book he refuses to talk to anyone until it is finished and entry to his office is barred apart from his two dogs. The Cardturner is his new book which publishes in 2010.

2.0 out of 5 stars I love the book, not super pleased about the purchase.
By Amanda Techow on October 17, 2019
I loved this book as a kid, so I figured I'd get a copy for my son to read with him. It was supposed to be a Christmas gift, but I'm not sure we'll wait that long. I ordered a very nice copy that said it was like new in the description. So I'm expecting a pretty nice book. What came to me is an old, beat up library book. It's got a sticker on the front cover and on the binding, it's got bends on the covers, there's tape on the front and back cover, the binding is falling apart, it's written in, and some of the pages are bent. On the plus side, all of the pages are there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sideways Stories from Wayside School. The whole series was a huge hit when our kids were little!
By Hansen on October 25, 2020
This Wayside book came in almost new condition, the cover is different but they warned me of that before purchase. Louis Sachar is a Newberry Medal winning author and the entertainment value of the Wayside School series is a testament to the talent put into all of his writing. I plan on gifting this one to my nephew to introduce these fun books to the next generation!
