Get ready to laugh out loud at Strangeville Middle School, the wackiest (definitely not cursed) school ever! This highly illustrated new series is Sideways Stories from Wayside School for a new generation!
Smile! It’s picture day! Except maybe don’t smile, because there’s a glowing lost-and-found box that’s appeared in the cafeteria. Sure, coming to Strangeville Middle has been an adjustment for new kid Harvey Hill, but things seem to be going well. That is, until strange things happen that may or may not be related to a 50-year-old curse (if, of course, curses were real, which they definitely are not).
Luckily Harvey and his friend Stella are on the case. Their classmate Nevaeh seems to think there’s a logical explanation to the sentient robots, flooding hallways, and the glowing lost-and-found box, but Harvey and Stella aren't convinced. Is Harvey brave enough to solve the mystery of the curse (ahem, if there is one)? Or is Strangeville doomed?
“Strangeville School is totally hysterical! It’s like a lopsided, upside down, triple somersault Sideways Stories from Wayside School for a whole new generation.” -- Chris Grabenstein, New York Times bestselling author of Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library and I Funny
