2nd Book in the series. Full of silly stories that keep the children's attention. Ending with the closing of school because of a herd of cows. Only the most advanced readers lose interest in this book. Read full review

I love these books. The dead pan humor is refreshing and hilarious. The cast of characters are easy to love and plus they're hugely easy books to read. It takes about an hour to read each book. Mostly ... Read full review

About the author (1998)

When Louis Sachar was going to school, his teachers always pronounced his name wrong. Now that he has become a popular author of children’s books, teachers all over the country are pronouncing his name wrong. It should be pronounced “Sacker,” like someone who tackles quarterbacks or someone who stuffs potatoes into sacks.

Mr. Sachar received a B.A. in economics from the University of California at Berkeley. His first book, Sideways Stories from Wayside School, was accepted for publication during his first year of law school. After receiving his law degree, he spent six years asking himself whether he wanted to be an author or a lawyer before deciding to write for children full-time. His books include Wayside School Gets a Little Stranger, There’s a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom, Wayside School is Falling Down, Dogs Don’t Tell Jokes, and the Marvin Redpost series.

Louis Sachar lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife and their daughter, Sherre.
