There was a terrible mistake. Wayside School was supposed to have been built with thirty classrooms all next to each other in a row. Instead, it was built with the thirty classrooms all on top of each other - thirty stories high! That may be why all kinds of strange stuff happens at Wayside School.

John who can only read upside down. It is a crazy mixed up school brilliantly brought to life by the irresistible Louis Sachar.
