Third book in the series. The school is back open and ready for new silly stories. Great way to end the year ( )

Cont. Real. Fiction

This book is finally reopening after a cow incident and the 19th floors teacher is having a baby and they need a substitute. This is an example of what not to do with a substitute. I could also use this to teach about cause and effect.

Wayside will certainly appeal to the target audience, and adults will enjoy the crazy humor as well. Sensitive children or ones who don't have a grasp of irony should stay away from it. ( )

These are fun books. ( )

Aww, yay! Since we already know the kids and the teacher, this book adds in new characters - and it's great fun. And just as ridiculous as the others. ( )

Hooray! Wayside School is Open Again!

All the kids from Wayside School had to spend 243 days in horrible schools while Wayside closed to get rid of the cows (Don't ask!). Now the kids are back and the fun begins again on every floor. Miss Much has prepared a Day on the 30th floor--with dogs and cats and frogs and skunks and pigs, and an orange named Fido causing a terrible commotion. In Mrs. Drazil's class, they're throwing a coffeepot, a sack of potatoes, a pencil sharpener, and a light bulb out the window to see which hits the ground first. But the big surprise is that Mrs. Jewls is expecting a baby--but one named Cootie Face or Bucket Head--and a substitute teacher is coming--and everyone knows what that means...

Something strange is going on at the already peculiar Way side School, when Mrs. Jewls leaves her students with a succession of substitute teachers. "Wayside School devotes [will] turn pages eagerly...these additional anecdote about wayside school will surely tickle the funny bones of fans"-School Library Journal

Unusual things continue to happen in the classroom on the thirtieth floor of Wayside School, which was accidentally built sideways with one classroom on each story.
