Sideways Stories From Wayside School

Sideways stories from Wayside School is a funny book about a school that was built sideways. There are thirty stories for each of the thirty stories (levels) in the building. I like the story of Sammy because he was wearing this coat that smelled terrible and when they took his coat off, he had another one underneath that smelled even worse. This kept on happening until he was 2 inches tall under that was a dead rat and they threw it away.

I also like the story of D.J. It was about this kid who kept on smiling but nobody knew why. They kept on guessing until he told the yard teacher, Louis. He told him that you need a reason to be sad, not to be happy. A great book!
