Review #293: Sideways Stories from Wayside School- Louis Sachar

Title: Sideways Stories from Wayside School
Author: Louis Sachar
Series: Wayside School #1
Pages: 128
Rating: 5/5 Stars
Summary: There'd been a terrible mistake. Wayside School was supposed to be built with thirty classrooms all next to each other in a row. Instead, they built the classrooms one on top of the other...thirty stories tall! (The builder said he was very sorry.)
Review: I remember reading this book as a kid in grade three and I remember it being my favourite part of class. When I saw the series on Bookoutlet I had to snatch them up. This book is perfect. It is wildly entertaining and laugh out loud funny. I love that each chapter is about a different character but they all mingle together. Sachar has one of the wildest imaginations ever and I love every crazy minute of it.
I think all teachers should read this series to their students. They were a pivotal point in my education for sure. And there are a lot of lessons that can be learned from them. If you haven't read this series you need to ASAP!
