So far, most of these books have tried to sneak a little bit of learning in with all the humor. There have been some math problems and some extremely questionable historical information, but Ms. Hannah talks about something I can certainly get behind – recycling!
Like the prior books in the series, there’s a bit of bathroom humor, girls are still the enemy and AJ hates everything school related. This is my last My Weird School review, so you’re on your own for the rest of the series. Gutman seems to be following a pretty predictable formula which is bound to be appealing to kids who hate school.
Sex, Nudity, Dating – None
Profanity – just plenty more “hate”, and some “dumb” and this time, we add “stupid”
Death, Violence and Gore – AJ wishes an elephant would step on Andrea’s head, the kids think teachers shoot BB guns in the teacher’s lounge. AJ says he’s going to paint a tree falling and crushing a family of happy butterflies. The kids joke that their real art teacher might be held captive and tortured. Andrea pushes AJ.
Drugs, Alcohol and Smoking – None
Frightening or Intense Things – None
