This month we’re reading and talking about the perennially popular Sideways Stories from Wayside School.

Join us for a read-aloud, discussion, and snack!

Bestselling and Newbery Medal and National Book Award–winning author Louis Sachar knows how to make readers laugh. And there are laughs galore in perennial favorite Sideways Stories from Wayside School, now available in paperback with brand-new art!

Accidentally built sideways and standing thirty stories high (the builder said he was very sorry for the mistake), Wayside School has some of the wackiest classes in town, especially on the thirtieth floor. That’s where you’ll meet Bebe, the fastest draw in art class; John, who only reads upside down; Myron, the best class president, ever; and Sammy, the new kid—he’s a real rat.

More than nine million readers have laughed at the wacky stories of Wayside School. So what are you waiting for? Come visit Wayside School!

Louis Sachar is the Newbery Award and National Book Award–winning author of Holes, the Wayside School series, and many other books for children and young adults. He was born in East Meadow, NY, and now lives in Texas with his family.
