Sideways Stories from Wayside School - Spring 2006
By Louis Sachar
Adapted by John Olive
Based on a popular series of children's books by the award winning children's book author Louis Sachar. Wayside Elementary School is a wacky world where Myron, Dameon, Leslie, Rhondi and Bebe attend class on the top floor of their 30 story school. (An architect accidentally built the school's 30 classroms on top of one another rather than side-by-side, but the school is actually only 29 stories high because there is no 19th floor!) As if that wasn't odd enough , the school day is filled with tornado drills, talking pigtails, and wicked teachers who turn students into apples. Amidst all this craziness, the students learn some wonderful lessons about life!
