Sideways Stories From Wayside School Summary

Twenty-eight kids, two teachers, a ghost, and a dead rat… Yup, sounds like a normal day at Wayside School. Each chapter of this book is an individual mini-story about a single one of these characters, usually trying to solve some kind of silly problem in the backwards world of Wayside. Through these thirty stories we get to know all the denizens of Wayside School and learn that even though their problems may be ridiculous, they're not all that different from "normal" kids after all.
