Wayside School Collection


My childhood favorite.

Easiest Review ever.

These books are my lifeblood. Some kids were super into Dear America or Babysitter’s Club or Goosebumps, and those are all amazing! But I was and always will be a ride or die Wayside School fan. Wayside School is like a child’s intro to David Lynch. It’s Twin Peaks for kids. Nothing makes sense and as a kid, it’s hilarious and odd and fun but man, PLEASE re-read these as an adult. They are so many types of fucked up it’s GREAT. The child who is buried under coats until everyone realizes he’s a rat? That’s some straight-up Tim Burton shit but better. The three Erics? How is that not a Seth Rogan movie already?

Every story in these is fantastic. It’s all so WEIRD and absurdist and every kid I know who was into these has grown up to be a chaotic bisexual and if that’s not a huge endorsement of a book I don’t know what is.
