Welcome back to Wayside School!

Your favorite students and teachers are all here. That includes Sharie, who loves her striped-and-spotted umbrella more than anything; Kathy, who has a bad case of oppositosis; Jason, who has to read the longest book in the world; and the rest of Mrs. Jewls’s class on the thirtieth floor, who are busily collecting toenail clippings.

Everyone is scrambling to prepare for the all-important Ultimate Test, but meanwhile, there is a mysterious Cloud of Doom looming above them…Author’s note.

School Library Journal

A delightful case of well-written nonsense. Mrs. Jewls’s class is back and as wacky as ever. Whether collecting a million toenails or dealing with ‘oppositosis,’ it’s safe to say that nothing is ever normal at Wayside School. Yet when a cloud of doom looms over its walls, things get even stranger. Even the elusive Miss Zarves makes an appearance! After 40 years, Wayside School is still a delight. It still tickles the funny bone with the most ridiculous scenarios. As expected, the characters do lack depth; their only growth is shown through silly antics. Yet parents and librarians will be overjoyed to have their favorite class back. The real question is: Has Wayside stood the test of time? In an age of Dan Gutman’s “My Weird School” series, where the text is more excitable and fast-paced, children may not be so enamored by the classic series. Parents and librarians will be filled with nostalgia. Recommended for young fiction collections seeking silly school stories.
