    1. I picked up Tripping Over the Lunch Lady: And Other School Stories because I loved the title and the humorous cover. This book brought me back to my childhood instantly from the beginning line on the introduction page, "What do I remember most about school?" A clever compiling of 10 stories of 10 children's authors answering that very question. The stories were true to life, funny, and very entertaining. I only wish there were more stories! I enjoyed reading the extra information provided after [...]


    2. This book was considered controversial due to references to war in one of the short stories that some people felt were inappropriate for children to be reading. I thought this story was really awesome, fun, and entertaining. I think it would be well liked by the students, and I feel like they would be having so much fun reading it and finding what they relate to, and I don't think the war references would necessarily be a bad thing for the students to read because of the way the short story is w [...]


    3. Read Experts, Incorporated by Sarah Weeks on 8/11/12.Rod Curtain is in big trouble. His humanities teacher has promised the class that if no one fails an assignment all year, she will buy the class pizza and soda to celebrate. There is just one assignment left: each student has to write an essay explaining what he wants to be when he grows up. Rod’s problem is that he doesn’t know what he wants to be, so he hasn’t written the assignment. Thankfully, after a morning spent contemplating unfo [...]


    4. I admit I'm not a kid, nor an elementary school teacher or even a parent of an elementary school child so I suppose that it does not matter that I did not really like this book. Like most books full of short stories, there were good ones like "Science Friction" by David Lubar and "Tripping Over the Lunch Lady" by Angela Johnson and bad ones, or at least ones I did not get, like "How I Got My English A" by Avi. I suspect part of my problem was that I didn't enjoy elementary school all that much, [...]


    5. A collection of short stories from well-known authors such as Avi, Rachel Vail, and Sarah Weeks, to name a few. Many of the stories were well-done, taking me back in time to my elementary and middle school days. A few were a bit confusing to read, notably Avi's, and I wonder if it reads easier or harder for children who are the target age. Regardless, it was a good book to read and realize that everyone has had similar school experiences - no one just coasts though. Each story ends with a questi [...]


    6. As I reenter the young adult lit scene, I am reminded of the many awkward moments of adolescence as well as how the young mind tries to make sense of it all. This book taps into those memories through ten short stories told by YAL authors who know their audience. I enjoyed reading and reconnecting with my middle school days - although I am glad to reminisce and NOT relive. My favorite stories were "How I Got my English A", "Science Friction", "The Desk" and "The Girls' Room". I would certainly r [...]


    7. This book was really good! I recommend it to people. I liked how there were short stories, not one story!Horse29LOL I LOVE THIS BOOK ITS HILLARIOUSE U SHOULD READ IT <3--CANDYLOVER51That book was funney with all of the stories in one 177 page bookevilteddybearIt was a great book, recommed to people like you!!!!-pbandj23i liked this book it was funnyomg love this book funny <3~I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!

    8. A great collection of short stories that really captures the essence of being in school - the embarrassment, boring assignments, friends, gross food, the works. I really enjoyed all the stories, except for the one comic in middle, which I just could't get into. The stories seemed pretty well split between boys and girl characters, so a good recommendation for anyone who currently struggles with the wilderness of school, or anyone who has memories of those experiences.


    9. this is a great collection of stories for late elementary to middle school students--particularly as a read-aloud. our class actually gave "the crush" a round of unsolicited applause at the story's finish! the stories are about middle-school age kids and most are humorous. all are well written. lastly, and not-for-nothing, it is an enjoyable book to read aloud as well--the tales are reminiscent for us older (past 15) folks.


    10. J Short stories. Mostly funny short stories about school life written by well known children's authors. I love the school pictures of the authors and some cute personal facts like what subject they liked, etc. at the end of each short story. For all elem and even some middle school.nds on the story


    11. This book is on the bibliography of books challenged, restricted, removed or banned in 2007-2008 put out by Robert P. Doyle and the American Library Association. More info at ila/pdf/2008banned.pdf


    12. I did not read the whole thing but it does not really matter because each chapter is a new story from a new author. But I really like Avi chapter about being kidnapped with his "teecher" and "righting a handsome note"(he had really bad grammar problems and ears)


    13. I think that this book so funny and interesting. I loved all of the characters but my favorite was the little clumsy boy that was trying to square dance. He almost broke every body ankle. I would recommend this book to my friends that like lots of comedy because this book is filled with it.


    14. This book is really funny!I liked this book.I really like the stories in this book. I think all older kids (middle school) would like this book. This book is a quick read and quite intresting. (Even if the stories are exagerrated.) So if you like short funny stoires read this book.


    15. This is a collection of stories from middle school. They do a nice job of addressing some common concerns of youth such as being the new kid, having difficulty learning to read, and competition. I only found a couple I didn't like as well but it should be enjoyed by many.


    16. I enjoyed this collection of short stories, all of which take place in school. I especially liked the title story by Angela Johnson, which was hilarious. This would be a great book to read, story by story, to an elementary school class.


    17. My favorite short story in this collection was Experts, Incorporated by Sarah Weeks- will definitely read this short story aloud next year. Great story for discussion too!









    18. This was a really funny book. Some of those stories are ones that are similar to mine. Funny, for a kid's book.






    19. This book was one that you don't want to put down. What was really hard to believe was that all the authors baded these stories off their school experiences.
