Wayside School is Falling Down

Written by Louis Sachar

This book is about kids at a school whose classroom is on the thirtieth floor. Throughout the story, many funny things happern. First, Mark Miller lies about his real name, Benjamin Nushmutt. Another character, Paul, has his life saved by pigtails. Ron eats the mushroom surprise. Dameon likes a girl, and hides a rat in her desk. The cows charge through the school and take it down. Wayside School is a very different school. To find out what all happens read the book.

This book is the best book I have ever read. My favorite part is when Ms. Jewls gets a computer and then she throws it out the window. That part cracked me up. I found Todd pretty interesting because every day he went home at 12:00 p.m., and doesn't like it. This book kind of reminds me of the lunch lady at my school because she is nice to people. Bebe reminds me of a kid in my class because she can draw intact. I think this book is perfect because the book tells about kids just like us.

I would recommend this book to people who love humorous books. What might interest the reader is all the people that it talks about. I would think people from ages 8-12 would enjoy reading this book because I am 10 and I love it.
