From top to bottom, Wayside is packed with quirky and hilarious characters brought to life by Aleksei’s illustrations.
Everybody loves an hilarious school-based drama and this series, by Louis Sachar, delivers in bucket loads! There has been a terrible mistake! Instead of having thirty classrooms side by side, Wayside School is thirty storeys high! (The builder said he was sorry.) Perhaps that’s why all sorts of strange and unusual things keep happening - especially in Mrs Jewls’s classroom on the very top floor.
Aleksei Bitskoff’s delightful illustrations for the new editions of the Wayside School series jump off the page and are a perfect match for the mixed-up mayhem of each of the four titles, published by Bloomsbury.
