Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

The Wayside School was supposed to be one story high, with 30 classrooms side by side; instead, it was built sideways, with 30 one-classroom stories. As befits such a strange school, these tales are a bit strange too. In one, Jason is stuck to his seat by a large wad of chewing gum. His teacher tries throwing ice water on him (to chill the gum to brittleness) and turning him upside down. She even contemplates cutting his pants off. Finally, though, he falls from his upside-down position when kissed (ugh!) by one of the girls in the class. Other tales include a bit of a moral, such as the story of Kathy, whose assumption that no one will ever like her is proved right, or the story of Bebe, who draws quickly but without artistic merit. The quirky humor in this book is appealing to children, and it makes a good read-aloud book for the younger set. (Ages 5 to 12) --Richard Farr

“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

2.0 out of 5 stars I love the book, not super pleased about the purchase.
Reviewed in the United States 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.
