Wayside lover

Hi I’m horrible at writing book reviews, so this may sound like a five year old has written this but hey, here goes nothing

I love this book I have listened to all three wayside stories, I think there is only three... I love these books it was the second book I listened to, after ‘Alice Through the Looking-Glass and what she found there’ I fell in love with the books, when I found out there was more than one, I slowly asked my mum to buy them. Also there’s one thing you need to know about me, when I really like a book I will listen/read it repeatedly, do you understand... good, now let’s continue with the book review (joke about the book, sorry if you don’t get it). I like how even if you don’t listen to them in order, it tells you a little about what happened most of the time. I find this book is quite unique, as it has a funny setting which makes many different scenarios. I feel like this is good for young children to teens, depending on your personality, this would also probably make a good family book. I have given this book 5 stars... but I think I’m way to kind to everybody....I do hope Lewis Sachar makes more of this book series, as I love listening to them so much.

Thanks for reading my loooong book review,

Wayside lover

One of our favorites

My kids and I have been listening to Louis Sachar read his Wayside books for years. Mr. Sachar’s wry tone and calm, warm voice bring the story of the classroom on the 30th floor to life. At Wayside School, there is no Miss Zarves, teachers have magical powers, and one of the heroes is none other than the yard teacher. So, rub a monkey’s tummy... with your head! Then proceed to listen to this book. We recommend listening while on a road trip, on the way to school, or on the way to sleep. Look deep into the pickle, and try not to get stuck on the 19th story.
