The builder of Wayside School made a big mistake. He built all thirty of the classrooms on top of each other instead of next to each other on one floor. All the kids in this book have class on the thirtieth floor. They are silly, and quirky, and fun, and they each have a tale that can be told about them. I remember this book fondly from when I was a kid, and decided to revisit it again. It was a bit more simplistic than I remember, but then again I think I was eight or nine. However, it was still funny, and just the right amount of depth for the audience that it is geared at. Great for reluctant readers due to short stories, and laugh out loud hilarity!
