Overview

Follow the zany adventures of Wrinkles Wallace and his classmates who have to come together as a team to outsmart their teacher and pass 5th Grade. After all, they've failed it a number of times--so many that Wrinkles is already 28-years old. The students deal with real-world issues and themselves in order to overcome the antics of their diabolical teacher, Mr. Sittin' B. Quiet. (By the way, he's only ten.) Join them in this upside-down world where non-stop humor serves as a guide to character-building and success.

Wrinkles Wallace is one of the most enjoyable youth novels I have read lately. Full of wit and humor, Wrinkles is sure to appeal to many kids and adults alike. The characters, with all of the flaws that most of us can relate to, face them together in a 5th grade classroom. I will be putting this on my reading list for my students next year. A genuine piece and a must read!

Wrinkles Wallace touches on familiar school related issues (social, esteem, retention, fear/anxiety, hiding behind masks, academic achievement)that we all can relate too. The characters are witty, easy to relate to and keeps you wondering...what next. My 11 year old son enjoyed the blog and opened his very own book, autographed by the author on Christmas Day. He wants a copy for his cousins to read and follow the series. When boys enjoy books....that's a plus. I highly recommend it and look forward to seeing what happens in the next book.

Wrinkles Wallace is a likable character who finds himself in the most unusual of predicaments. This fabulous tale will entertain the middle school set with a quirky storyline and hilarious characters. WW also gives Language Arts teachers plenty to work with its subtle tie-ins to the Common Core Standards. I think this book is a real win-win for kids and teachers alike! Well done Mr. Parks!

I loved this book from the first page to the last & I laughed through all of it! Wrinkles Wallace & his adventures will capture your heart! It is the most creative childrens story I've read in decades. It has all those wonderful tidbits that children dream of such as really unusual classmates, crazy taste treats only kids love, the most bazaar school imaginable & a very weird little teacher! The creativity & imagination that went into writing WWKNS is amazing. Marquin Parks has a wonderful gift for writing. When you read his story...you feel as if you are a part of it! That's how much it draws you in & you don't want to put it down! WWKNS is a definite keeper!

Kudos to Marquin Parks for creating hilarious characters and an original storyline kids will love! Wrinkles Wallace: Knights of Night School is a must for the educators. If you think your students have lost the love of reading, you will be proved wrong when they get their hands on this book. There is a #1 on the spine so I'm hoping this is part of a series. Bring us more!!!

Wrinkles Wallace is a laugh-out-loud book that is sure to be a crowd pleaser for both young and old alike. There is a unique role reversal of characters that makes this story stand out from others. The reading and writing strategies that are intertwined throughout the book will make it an excellent choice as a mentor text in the classroom. The learning opportunities within the text allows children to learn without them realizing it! What could be better than an enjoyable, witty story with learning sprinkled amongst the pages!

Marquin Parks has written a unique and entertaining story that is sure to capture young minds! Mr. Parks writes in a way which reminds children that reading, even if not "easy," is definitely lots of fun, and creates an experience that children today are looking for. The role reversal of characters, wittiness, and silly situations endured by Wrinkles himself, plus the other Knights of Night School, are different from other books, making it an intriguing adventure sure to make any kid (even adults!) laugh and want more! (Good news - It's the first of a series!) This book shows lots of promise for the future of education and the future of reading! Mr. Parks hides various learning opportunities in this book, just like parents mask vegetables in children's food, making reading this book a win-win situation for all!
