Publisher's Summary

Is your school just a little too…NORMAL?

Maybe you should go to Wayside School. You'll meet Bebe, the fastest draw in art class; John, who only reads upside down; and Sammy, the new kid—he's a real rat. Come on! Hurry up! If you're late for class, Mrs. Gorf will turn you into an app…Oops. Sorry about that.

More than 6 million kids have laughed at the wacky stories of Wayside School.

Perfect Car Book for Kids

Need a book for your commute with kids? This is a great one. Broken up into vignettes with familiar and funny characters, this book will make your 2nd-5th graders giggle and talk the whole way to school. As an early chapter book, it is also a great read-a-long for kids who need the extra boost.

Fun Original and Funy

What made the experience of listening to Sideways Stories from Wayside School the most enjoyable?

The story by itself is so bright and witty, it contains all sorts of sideways to approach the reader, hummer, absurd, eerie, it is an adventurous experience. The performance is by the author and its great, his voice is full with expression. It makes the reading experience even more adventurous!!! its perfect!

Missing Chapters

What disappointed you about Sideways Stories from Wayside School?

The chapters did not have bookmarks. As a teacher with multiple classes using the audio, this was a major problem.
