School!: Adventures at the Harvey N. Trouble Elementary School by Kate McMullan
McMullan, Kate, School!: Adventures at the Harvey N. Trouble Elementary School. Feiwel and Friends, 2010. Pgs. 160. Language: G, Violence: G, Sexual Content: G
This crazy mixed up school has problems every day of the week. Whether you’re following Ron Faster as he talks about Mr. Ivan Stuckinaditch, the bus driver who rarely misses a pothole in the road or Izzy Noral who swears there is never a normal day at Harvey N. Trouble Elementary School, you’ll find this school a little mixed-up and a lot more unusual than your typical elementary.
A fun, quick read book for fans of Sideways Stories from Wayside School. The characters are hilarious, the short stories are fun to read, and the pictures only add to the story. Readers who like humor, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and realistic fiction will not be disappointed with this book. EL (4-6). ESSENTIAL. Reviewer: Kira M, Youth Services Librarian, WHI Public Library.
