In fact, the whole book will remind you of Sideways Stories from Wayside School, because each chapter focuses on a different student, and the style is pretty similar to that famous book by Louis Sachar. What's different about this book is that each chapter takes one of Aesop's Fables (You know, the Tortoise and the Hare, and stories like that?), and tries to create a modern school fable with a moral for each. Although some of the morals make you think, they also get in the way of the story, and make you wonder why on earth the author chose to write some of these chapters. The characters are hilarious, but some of the writing is blah. It's worth a a read, especially if you love fables, but don't expect it to reach your "favorites" list.
