Synopses & Reviews
Sideways Stories from Wayside School Check out the story that started it all. This rib tickling chapter book has sold over 4 million copies. Wayside School is Falling Down Get your second serving of Wayside School, where the lunch lady, Mrs. Mush, is dishing out her famous Mushroom Surprise. Ron says it tastes like hotdogs and grape jelly. Wayside School Gets a Little Stranger In this third book of the Wayside trilogy, Wayside School reopens after 243 days. It took that long to get rid of the cows. (Don t ask!) Now the kids are back and the fun begins again.
There was a terrible mistake-Wayside School was built with one classroom on top of another, thirty stories high! (The builder said he was sorry.) Maybe that's why all kinds of funny things happened at Wayside-especially on the thirteenth floor.There was a terrible mistake-Wayside School was built with one classroom on top of another, thirty stories high!

Wayside School was supposed to be built with 30 classrooms all next to each other in a row. Instead, the classrooms were stacked one on top of the other--30 stories tall! Here are some hilarious and fun stories about the school, the teachers, and the students.
About the Author
When Louis Sachar was going to school, his teachers always pronounced his name wrong. Now that he has become a popular author of childrens books, teachers all over the country are pronouncing his name wrong. It should be pronounced “Sacker,” like someone who tackles quarterbacks or someone who stuffs potatoes into sacks.
Mr. Sachar received a B.A. in economics from the University of California at Berkeley. His first book, Sideways Stories from Wayside School, was accepted for publication during his first year of law school. After receiving his law degree, he spent six years asking himself whether he wanted to be an author or a lawyer before deciding to write for children full-time. His books include Wayside School Gets a Little Stranger, Theres a Boy in the Girls Bathroom, Wayside School is Falling Down, Dogs Dont Tell Jokes, and the Marvin Redpost series.
Louis Sachar lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife and their daughter, Sherre.
