Once, there was a school and the meanest teacher there, at Wayside school was Mrs. Gorf. She could turn kids into apples. This book was very funny when it said that the new teacher thought the children were monkeys. First, Joe had a problem, then Sharie and so on. Will their problems be solved? There are many unique things about the school building. Find out! This book is very interesting.
It's about a crazy 30 story high school with kids that do everything backwards. When a normal kid is transferred into it, he has to learn how to fit in!

Mrs. Jewls looked at the children. They were horribly cute. In fact, they were much too cute to be children.
"I don't believe it," said Mrs. Jewls. "It's a room full of monkeys!"
