Retro day

Today I've been looking up old-timey stuff from my childhood. I just ran across this book, Sideways Stories From Wayside School. What a classic.

And it's so twisted. There is no Miss Zarves, the three Erics, Leslie's talking pigtails, Sammy, the student who is actually the dead rat that keeps sneaking back into the classroom.... weird stuff.

I hope kids have quality books like this one to read these days.

This was one of my favorite books growing up. So classic.

Man, I forgot how creepy this book was, nowadays, books like this would be banned/burned.

I can't believe I missed this post (actually, I suppose I can... I was in the hospital). I loved this book and its follow-ups.
