“Wayside” is based on Louis Sachar’s best selling book series. Millions of young readers have enjoyed the comically-absurd tales of students on the top floor of Wayside, a quirky grammar school that was accidentally built 30-stories high.
The original plans called for 30 classrooms on the ground floor, but the builder made a mistake and stacked all 30 on top of each other (he said he was sorry).
Now the students on the 30th floor enjoy a world where pigtails come to life , class elections are decided playing dodgeball, and being turned into an apple “is just part of growing up.”
“Wayside” is more than just another classroom comedy. It is a fantastic, defiant romp through the peculiar twists and turns of kid logic–which just happens to take place in school.
