Full Text Reviews:

School Library Journal - 04/01/1995 Gr 3-6--These additional anecdotes about Wayside School will surely tickle the funny bones of Sachar's fans. Thirty more ``time outs'' are miraculously conflated into a semicoherent story about the students and teachers at this unique 30-story 1-classroom-per-floor elementary school. Mrs. Jewls, the teacher atop the school, is out on maternity leave and her students find themselves facing three consecutive substitutes: Mr. Gorf, who steals kids' voices; Mrs. Drazil, who can be super sweet or sociopathically sour depending on the class's adherence to her rules; and, finally, the mind-reading and malicious Miss Nogard, who has the disturbing desire to turn students against one another. Sachar's offering contains hilarity, malevolence, romance, relentless punning, goofiness, inspiration, revenge, and poignancy. There's an edge here that may disturb some adults--a couple of the subs are over-the-top mean--but young readers will revel in the pranks, wade through the romance, identify with the students' thoughts, detect the thread connecting these stories, and come to realize that good is better than glum.--John Sigwald, Unger Memorial Library, Plainview, TX - Copyright 1995 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
