My Thoughts

This was a fun and nostalgic trip back to my childhood. I have so many great memories of reading the Wayside School books. They're weird and wacky; just the type of stories I love. Now that I'm thinking about it, maybe my love of these weird kind of books stems from Wayside School.

I went into to this reread thinking that it had been so long since the last time I'd read it (20+ years! EEK!) that I wouldn't remember much at all. Was I wrong or what! It all came back to me. It had me laughing so hard and left a permanent smile on my face. I felt like I had been reunited with a long lost friend. I loved every second of it!

Four Stars


  1. Rereading a favorite book is a lot like reuniting with a long lost friend. I think that's why I still have a box of my favorite childhood books. They bring back such good memories I'll probably never give them away. :)

    1. There's something so special about those childhood books. Rereading them is such a joy! :)
