Wayside School 3-Book Collection: Sideways Stories from Wayside School, Wayside School Is Falling Down, Wayside School Gets a Little Stranger Kindle Edition
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.--This text refers to the paperback edition.

UPDATE: We've now read through two of the books and I have changed my opinion. They're not innocent and very strange content for children, even teens. The first book required some off the cuff editing with words like "stupid" or "dumb jerk" but the second book pushed things WAY, WAY too far. I couldn't edit last some of the content that was absolutely not age appropriate; I know maybe reading these to a 5 year old may not have been the intended audience but I wouldn't recommend these for an 11 year old either. Theyre maybe suitable for a teenager, with discretion. The second book seems to push an agenda, with undertones of inappropriate, grown up content. Kids are very impressiomionable and that's the basis of my updated opinion here.
These books were some of the very few I repeatedly checked out of the school library because they were always worth a re-read. The best part about them is the layers in the simple yet chaotic stories that reveal themselves in different forms as you grow older! I found my way back to this set recently when I decided it was time for my 8-year old niece (who is starting to discover her own passion for reading) to get her first exposure to the amazingness these stories offer up! And in a proud Uncle moment, she literally was nose deep in the first book of the set as quickly as she woke up the next morning, already telling her parents how much shes loves it!! The funny thing is, buying this set invoked so many nostalgic feelings in me that I almost didn't want to give it to her! Could not be happier though knowing that I could bring a whole new generation into the crazy world of Sachar and excited to borrow these once my niece is done!

Also good to note that some of the stories are outright bizarre. There are some funny ones, there are some which has a message to deliver to the kid (e.g. what is art? is it the quantity or the quality?) and there are the bizarre ones, which are not really funny, and doesn't have anything to say either. Even the kids find them strange.
Putting this aside, I still think it is a 5 star.
