Wayside School Box Set

Wayside School Boxed Set
By Louis Sachar, Illustrated by Adam McCauley

Wayside School has mean, crazy teachers and weird, stinky students. It also has a horrible Halloween party and the freakiest events ever on the 13th floor. Laugh loudly with your children at the zany antics in this hilarious trilogy. Arranged in short, self-contained chapters that work as brief bedtime stories.
