More About the Author

This is hard. I'm a pretty regular Jersey guy who spent fifteen years trying to write newspaper articles, magazine articles, screenplays, books for adults, and just about everything else before I discovered the one thing I'm good at--writing fiction for kids. I aim for kids who DON'T like to read, and hopefully the kids who DO like to read will enjoy my stuff too. For all the gory details about me, check out my web site.

It's the end of the school year, and Mrs. Daisy's class is going to "graduate" to third grade. A.J. and the class just found out that Ryan's mom, Mrs. Dole, is the new PTA president, and she has big plans for the celebration. Did you know you can Rent-A-Anything, even Blue Angels?!

MRS. DOLE IS OUT OF CONTROL is the first installment of the "My Weird School Daze" series, which follows the 21-book "My Weird School" series. The story is told from the point of view of A.J., a rambunctious boy who has a lot in common with Dennis the Menace.

The writing is on a young boy's level, but some parents may not appreciate the occasional name calling and A.J.'s attitude. A.J. isn't a great example of how to behave. On the other hand, a lot of A.J.'s perspective is typical of the average elementary-school boy. The best way to get someone interested in reading is to give them a book that speaks to them. Chances are, this book will relate to boys everywhere.

My seven year old son hates to read. He hates it with a passion. He came home with this book from the school library and read it in two days. He loves them. He thinks they are so funny. I get so excited to hear him laugh out loud at a BOOK finally. I had to buy him two other books in this series. Thank you, Mr. Gutman.

My sons love the Dan Gutman Weird School Books and they weren't disappointed with the new "Daze" series. They both read the book twice. As per my eldest, "This book is just as funny as the rest."

When I first read this my mom thought that l was not going to like it but whenever I was not doing anything I would read on my Kindle .then I got the books at the library once I started reading these books every one else would ether put the books on there Kindle or took them out for library .After I read that book I read all of them .After I read the books my sister that is 5 read the books to. I never knew that there could be such a good book like that.I read Diary of a wimpy kid but this is way better then that.I love reading these books I keep reading them all over again.

Here is a little song I wrote for this book if you learn this you can do It in any tune :

Always crazy at school people bothering me
I hate school Don't you see
Head to my toes my school is crazy
Maybe I'm being critical
or maybe it's the principal

This book is about A.J. and the gang graduating for third grade. Instead of Mrs. Dole setting up a graduation, she goes way overboard and sets up a petting zoo and blue angels! After Mr. Klutz said "throw your caps in the air!", A.J. accidentally knocked over the enternal flame! After that, Emily caught on fire, the petting zoo animals escaped! "Drop down and roll!" A.J. said. Then, Emily dropped down and rolled and hit the table and the cake fell on Emily! The good news is that the cake put the fire out. The bad news is that the cake fell over. This is some of the silliness that happens in the book.

I'm giving this 5 stars because it is really funny and exiting. I am 9 and I think any kid in elementary school should read this book.

I am not sure how we came across these books, but I read the first one to my son when he was just 5. He was hooked right off the bat! . Some parents think some of the humor is inappropriate, but I don't feel that way. I actually, used to look forward to reading these to him and the humor is what my son enjoys about them. He is now 9 and they are still his favorite. I like how the characters progress through Elementary school, as my son grows, they grow with him. I find it amusing he relates so much to the main character A.J., and classmates to characters in the series. The books are pretty easy reading. He started reading them on his own by the start of 1st grade, but it was the love of these books that encouraged him to make the effort.

This book is really not a lot about Mrs Dole being out of control but it is about a lot more entertaining and interesting stuff. But still this book is worth $3.41 and when Mr Hynde came in at the graduation time made me really happy. And just to be sure this book is really cool and it is really full of entertainment and fun stuff and this is a must read book I mean this whole series is a must read series for me and probably for many other people who have read this book and I hope everyone who has read this book LOVE IT!!! AND GRADUATION IS THE FIRST RULE OF BEING A KID

Dan Gutman understands young reader’s humor and has created a fantastic book formula to draw in even the most reluctant of readers. The My Weird School series is perfect for students to practice their reading skills with its repetitive yet hysterical narrative and story lines. But don’t mention that part to your kiddos, they might run away in fear they could learn something. A must have collection for any grade school library or classroom!
