Description-

  • With more than 23 million books sold, the My Weird School series really gets kids reading!

    It's the start of a new school year in this third book in the My Weird School Daze series. And A.J.'s third-grade teacher, Mr. Granite, is out of this world! He's a super genius who dresses weird, talks weird, and acts even weirder. He seems to know literally everything, which only makes the students at Ella Mentry School wonder... Is he a computer posing as a person, or does he come from another planet?

    Perfect for reluctant readers and word lovers alike, Dan Gutman's hugely popular My Weird School chapter book series has something for everyone. Don't miss any of the hilarious adventures of A.J. and the gang—from Weird, to Weirder, to Weirder-est!

    This chapter book is an excellent choice to share with children ages 6 to 10 who are ready to read independently. It's a fun way to keep your child engaged and as a supplement for activity books for children.

Excerpts-

  • Chapter One

    The Boringest Store in the World

    My name is A.J. and I hate school.

    Do you know which months are the best months of the year? July and August, of course! Because there's no school over the summer.

    Yay!

    The only problem is that now it's September.

    Boo!

    Bummer after the summer!

    School starts tomorrow. So my mom said we had to go to this store called Staples to buy back-to-school supplies. Ugh! Staples is the boringest store in the history of the world. They don't sell video games or toys or any cool stuff. They just sell pens and pencils and ultraboring junk like that.

    My mom had a list of things I had to get for third grade. After we found the boring book covers, boring binders, boring colored pencils, and boring glue sticks, I wanted to get a pen with a laser beam in it. Laser beams are cool. I saw this movie where they used a laser beam to kill aliens from outer space. But they don't sell pens like that at Staples.

    They do have one cool thing — a copy machine. Copy machines are cool because you can put your head on the glass and make a funny picture of your face. It only costs eight cents! But you have to be sure to close your eyes or you'll go blind.

    I stuck my head in the copy machine and closed my eyes. I was reaching for the Start button when I heard the most horrible sound in the history of the world. . . .

    "Hi, Arlo!"

    Ugh! It was Andrea Young, this annoying girl in my class with curly brown hair. I hate her. Andrea calls me by my real name because she knows I don't like it.

    I took my head off of the copy machine. Andrea was with her mom, who looks just like Andrea but with wrinkles.

    "Are you buying back-to-school supplies too, Arlo?" Andrea asked.

    "No," I told her. "I'm skydiving."

    When somebody asks you a dumb question, you should always give them a dumb answer. That's the first rule of being a kid.

    "I would never put my face in a copy machine," said Andrea.

    "Why not?"

    "Because I'm one of a kind!" Andrea said.

    "You should put your face in a paper shredder instead," I suggested.

    Andrea rolled her eyes. Why can't a copy machine fall on her head?

    My mom and Andrea's mom were talking about the weather. Grown-ups are really interested in weather. Nobody knows why. So I was forced to talk to Andrea.

    "Which do you like better, Arlo," Andrea asked, "this notebook with a picture of kittens on it or this one with elephants on it?"

    "Do they have a notebook with a picture of elephants stomping on kittens?" I asked.

    Andrea rolled her eyes again. Our moms said we could play around on the office chairs for a few minutes while they talked about the weather.

    "Let's pretend we're grown-ups working in a real office!" Andrea said.

    I sat at one of the desks and picked up a fake telephone.

    "Send over a million dollars!" I barked into the phone. "Now!"

    "Where's my coffee?" Andrea shouted. "I'll die if I don't have coffee!"

    "You're fired!" I barked again. "Get out!"

    Pretending to be a grown-up is fun.

    "I need to file some reports," Andrea said, and she rolled her chair over to a big filing cabinet. When she pulled it open, the most amazing thing in the history of the world happened.

    A head popped out!

    "G'day, mates!" the head said.

    "AAhhhhhhhhhhhh!" we screamed.

    It was Mr. Granite, our new, third-grade teacher!
