Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

“My name is A.J. and I hate school.” The first sentence in the My Weirder School series echoes the opening lines of Gutman’s My Weird School Daze and My Weird School series. In the new book, Miss Child leads a class tour of the zoo, where the students watch an elephant painting pictures, a gorilla using sometimes-rude sign language, and a child who has fallen into the lion enclosure. A cool, skateboarding girl joins the class, but most of the characters are the same, the book’s tone is the same, and the illustration style is the same. So what is different about the new series? A. J. and his classmates, who were in second grade in the My Weird School series and on summer vacation in My Weird School Daze, are now starting third grade, and . . . well, actually, that is about it. Fans of the previous, hugely popular series will continue to enjoy the kids’ banter, the lowbrow humor, and the antics of the wacky adults who run the show. Grades 1-3. --Carolyn Phelan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

My son got this book for his 8th birthday. While I felt like the reading level was right on for him, I thought that the content and topics were geared towards older kids (10+). Some of the words we don't use in our house and my son was not interested in the boy-girl crush dynamic. Kids are going to grow up fast enough, why hurry them by putting unnecessary thoughts and ideas into their heads.

First there was My Weird School where we met A.J. and his 2nd grade class, then My Weird School Daze which brought them to 3rd grade, and now A.J. and the gang are still in 3rd grade in the first two books in the My Weirder School series

I think that these books straddle the line between the silly humor kids love with appropriate moral themes and use of language that parents want. The kids at Ella Mentary school are real kids. A.J. calls Emily the cry-baby and is always trying to think of a put-down for Andrea, but they are normal 3rd grade kids of put downs, and remember, kids are great detectors of truth. They want to read about kids who seem real.

A perfect example of kid-friendly and parent-approved is the way the boys changed the lines to the popular "Clean Up, Clean Up" song that all the kids were singing when they had to tidy the room:

". . . me and the guys changed the last line to `Even in your underwear.'

It was hilarious. Anything to do with underwear is hilarious."

My daughter read some of these books in elementary school, but I had never checked them out until I was sent Miss Child Has Gone Wild for review. My 7-year-old son and I both read and enjoyed the first two in the series and give them 2 thumbs up!

My second grader loved reading this book! It is the perfect level for beginning chapter books, not too long, and has drawings every few pages. It is a very cute story with a lot of humor, which is all very clean and amusing. We both laughed while reading this story... it was a lot of fun! When they get to the zoo, there are several chapters about their encounters with the animals, ending with Miss Child getting chased by the lion. I am buying more of the series right now at the kids book fair!

This might be the worst book my kid has brought home from the library. She will not be finishing this book, I am appalled at the utter drivel coming out by these lazy children's authors. I doubt any of the parents leaving positive reviews actually read this book. 'I hate school, math is stupid' are the most quotable parts of the book. Bullying of female classmates portrayed as jealous and catty. Just pure Sexist crap. We should be educating our young men and women to behave respectfully towards their peers. And an education is not a waste of time.

This book was published and written in a good way. But this book is not as good as the other books in the My Weird School series. But this book is a very affordable and fun book to read when you have nothing to do. Also this book might be scary in some parts.

My daughter (8) and I both read this, as a class was reading it in school. I can't imagine why a school would choose this book when there are so many better ones out there. We did read it to the end, you can read it in about 30 minutes, but we didn't pick up the series. If you want a crazy school book, we much prefer sideways stories from wayside school.

Very funny. I'm reading to the kids. Laughing too. However, it does have some language which I "alter" during story time. Like "Stupid"... or "dumb head". Not the language I encourage for my boys. I skip 1 or 2 paragraphs. But they think the book is so funny.

Not good at bedtime since we are all laughing!

I will be buying more of these.
