    Almost twenty-five years after Wayside School Gets a Little Stranger comes this fourth entry in the beloved series, and happily, not a whole lot has changed. The same cast of characters occupies Mrs. Jewls' classroom on the thirtieth floor, and while there remain chapters that work as stand-alone stories, the book as a whole is remarkably cohesive, with callback jokes aplenty—sometimes hearkening back to previous titles—and several plot threads running throughout. As Mrs. Jewls prepares her students for the Ultimate Test, which tests "everything you've ever learned in your whole life," a class project to understand the nature of "a million" has them attempting to collect that many finger- and toenail clippings. Meanwhile, a mysterious, dark cloud has settled over the school, and whatever it is, it can't be good. Sachar's return to Wayside continues the same side-splitting formula, but a little added polish, overall cohesion, and character development may make this one the best of the bunch. An unbeatable read-aloud option for early middle-grade audiences.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Anything from Newbery Medalist Sachar is sure to draw a crowd, but a return to Wayside School, forty years after its debut, feels extra special.
