Über diesen Titel:
Strange Strangers Come to Wayside School...
Welcome back to Wayside School! After closing for 242 days to get rid of the cows (don't ask), everyone's favorite thirty-story school is finally back in session.
But all is not well at the school with no nineteenth floor. Mrs. Jewls, the best teacher at Wayside, is having a baby, and that can mean only one thing--substitute teachers.
First comes Mr. Gorf. Was he married to the terrible Mrs. Gorf? And why does he have three nostrils? The kids won't tell you. They're not talking.
Then there's Mrs. Drazil. She never forgets a missed homework assignment, not even one that Louis the yard teacher owed her fifteen years ago.
By the time the class gets the fearsome Miss Nogard, the kids can't wait for everything to return to normal.
Wayside School may seem like a pretty strange place already, but now it has to get a little stranger."These additional anecdotes about Wayside School will surely tickle the funny bones of Sachar's fans. Thirty more 'time outs' are miraculously conflated into a semicoherent story about the students and teachers at this unique 30-story 1-classroom-per-floor elementary school. Mrs. Jewls, the teacher atop the school, is out on maternity leave and her students find themselves facing three consecutive substitutes....Contains hilarity, malevolence, romance, relentless punning,goofiness, inspiration, revenge, and poignancy."--School Library Journal.
Über den Autor: When Louis Sachar was going to school, his teachers always pronounced his name wrong. Now that he has become a popular author of children?s books, teachers all over the country are pronouncing his name wrong. It should be pronounced ?Sacker,? like someone who tackles quarterbacks or someone who stuffs potatoes into sacks.
Mr. Sachar received a B.A. in economics from the University of California at Berkeley. His first book, Sideways Stories from Wayside School, was accepted for publication during his first year of law school. After receiving his law degree, he spent six years asking himself whether he wanted to be an author or a lawyer before deciding to write for children full-time. His books include Wayside School Gets a Little Stranger, There?s a Boy in the Girls? Bathroom, Wayside School is Falling Down, Dogs Don?t Tell Jokes, and the Marvin Redpost series.
Louis Sachar lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife and their daughter, Sherre.
