FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. Don't miss the fun at Wayside School--an elementary school with supernatural elements--built with one classroom on top of another, thirty stories high.
The wacky school--and unusual characters--first portrayed in Sideways Stories from Wayside School is back. But in the sequel, the students venture further than they dared before--Myron walks down to the basement, Allison finds the nonexistent 29th floor, Mrs. Jewls drops a brand-new computer from the 30th floor, Jenny reads a story backwards, and a substitute teacher turns the tables on the class. Sachar has written 30 tongue-in-cheek, slightly madcap stories that are sure to appeal to the slightly caustic humor that is typical of middle readers. Illustrations not seen by PW. Ages 8-12. (Mar.)
