Wayside School is Falling Down
Title: Wayside School is Falling Down Author: Louis Sachar Publication Date: 1989
Publication Company: HarperCollins Publishers Inc. New York City, NY: United States.
Characters: The characters are: Louis, Mrs. Jewls, Mark Miller, Benjamin Nushmutt, Bebe, Jenny, Mac, Eric 1, Eric 2, Eric 3, John, Ron, Allison, Stephen, Joy, Jason, Mrs. Zarves, Virginia, Nick, Ray, Mrs. Gorf, Mrs. Waloosh and Mr. Kidswatter. I liked all the characters except Mrs. Gorf who is mean and cruel. All the characters made me feel crazy and wacky, wile Mrs. Gorf made me feel sad and angry.
Plot: No school is wackier than Wayside School! In this school teachers throw computers out of the window, kids have tattoos, children say their name is Benjamin, and even read stories from the end to the beginning. In this 30–story-high school, craziness rules!
My Opinion: I adored the book and I even ordered more Wayside School books. My favourite part was when everyone danced with Mrs. Waloosh. The funniest part was when Allison went into Mrs. Zarves’s class and she sat next to a 32-year-old pupil!
I highly recommend this book because it’s suitable even for grown-ups and because it is one of the funniest books I have ever read.
