I read this book from cover to cover one Sunday morning and busted out laughing through most of the stories. I knew some of the kids and teachers but that really doesn't matter because the stories are freakin' FUNNY. And I do believe I was present for some of his pranks. They ring a very vague school bell from my long ago, now newly present past.
I would highly recommend this book as a gift from any parent to their kid nervously starting high school - let them read it and believe that high school will be an OK place. Other teachers should read this so they know it's OK to have fun with a notsofunsometimes kind of job. I have passed on many copies of this book to fellow alumni and to friends who just like to laugh.
And I'm not biased, I swear!
