My Weird School #5: Miss Small Is off the Wall!

Chapter One

Fizz Ed is the Coolest

My name is A.J. and I hate school.

Well, I hate that reading and writing and arithmetic part of school, anyway. That stuff is for the birds!

There's only one thing about school that I like.

Fizz Ed.

Fizz Ed! I love Fizz Ed! Fizz Ed is the coolest! Fizz Ed isn't even like school at all. Fizz Ed is what you would be doing if you didn't have to go to school. If you ask me, school would be cool if we could just have Fizz Ed all day long and forget about all that boring reading and writing and arithmetic stuff.

Well, actually, to be honest, I've never had Fizz Ed. At my school, the Ella Mentry School, we didn't have Fizz Ed last year when we were in first grade. But my friend Billy around the corner goes to a different school. Billy's in third grade, and he told me that at his school they play dodgeball and basketball and football in Fizz Ed. They get to do anything they want.

Man, I wish I could go to Billy's school instead of boring old Ella Mentry School. I've been waiting forever until I got to second grade, when we would have Fizz Ed.

"Okay, everybody, it's time to line up," my teacher, Miss Daisy, announced one morning after we pledged the allegiance.

"Line up for what?" we all asked.

"Fizz Ed!" Miss Daisy said. "We're going to meet Miss Small in the gym."

"Yippee!"

If my grandson can sit still for an hour and read this book and finish it in a couple of days, then this is a great book. He loves the whole series. I've been given a list of the books that he hasn't read yet and was asked to please get them for him. He says that the books are a riot.

It was very funny, what with AJ calling all the teachers 'dirtbags'. Andrea Young is very smart--or she thinks she is!!! I liked how Andrea Young and AJ worked together in the three-legged race and won! First place! They won the gold! 'Miss Small, the gym teacher, is teaching AJ, Andrea, and the gang to juggle scarves, balance feathers, and do the Chicken Dance! Is this any way to stay in shape? Whatever happened to dodgeball!?'

Do you like chapter books? Then go buy Miss Small is off the Wall. I think this book is wonderful. The author is Dan Gutman and I actually met him. The story is about AJ and his friends. They think Ms. Small is getting old but she's really not. It's in black and white and it's a chapter book. There are about 11 chapters. It's in a series called My Weird School series. It's hilarious and amusing. The pictures are awesome! I give it 5 stars. Please buy this book!
