This early middle grade novel is an excellent choice for tween readers in grades 3 to 5.. It's a fun way to keep your child entertained and engaged while not in the classroom. Accidentally built sideways and standing thirty stories high (the builder said he was very sorry for the mistake), Wayside School has some of the wackiest classes in town, especially on the thirtieth floor. That's where you'll meet Bebe, the fastest draw in art class; John, who only reads upside down; Myron, the best class president, ever; and Sammy, the new kid-he's a real rat. And get ready for Wayside School Beneath the Cloud of Doom, the brand-new, fourth installment in the series, and the first in twenty-five years!  More than fifteen million readers  have laughed at the clever and hilarious stories of Wayside School. So what are you waiting for? Come visit Wayside School!
