Yeah, it’s sad. A little too sad. It was one of his most cherished children’s series since its unforgettable debut in 2008. It left everyone ROFLMFAO. I couldn’t think of another book series more funny. The thing is…Dan Gutman’s Weird School Daze series has come to its pit stop. Its final destination. The little bookstore in heaven. It…is…FINISHED.
Shed all the tears you want, fans. This has officially been stated by Mr. Gutman, and it has become the next death of Michael Jackson as it is. Where will A.J., Ryan, Michael, Andrea, Emily, among others, go? No one knows. I can forever remember Michael not tying his shoes, Ryan eating stuff that isn’t food, and Andrea being the know-it-all that every stuck-up girl would love to hang out with. But we can’t just say “Whatever, cry a river, build a bridge, get over it” and just WALK AWAY! We gotta reminisce some of the funniest moments to cherish as precious memorabilia. And I have LOTS of memorabilia.
Remember in Mrs. Dole Is Out of Control, when the graduation party went out in a blaze of glory, by which I mean fire blazed through it gloriously?
Remember in Officer Spence Makes No Sense, when Officer Spence arrested everyone because he couldn’t get a lousy PB&J sandwich? Come on, Mrs. Spence! Just one, even if it kills you?
Remember in Miss Laney Is Zany, when she couldn’t remember the science of sound on a game show, but recited her entire commercial afterward?
Remember in Miss Mary Is Scary, when Miss Mary had a boyfriend that made a song called “I Love Dirt” that was a hit on YouTube, leading him to perform on Saturday Night Live?
And even to sum up with our theme, check out this video where author Dan Gutman yammers at you for six minutes!
This really was a great series that even critical feedback presented with positive reaction. But we all got to move on sometimes, right? That’s not entirely true! Dan’s second series may have ended…but his THIRD series is just getting started. That’s right, moping Weird School fans! Welcome to a whole new…Weirder School!
That’s right. Dan Gutman’s second series might have been ended, but this summer, his third series is about to become your next summer read! Forget the Summer Reading Program now! Three titles of this series are already due for release this summer: Miss Child Has Gone Wild, Mr. Harrison is Embarassin’, and Mrs. Lilly Is Silly! Keep an eye peeled for June 21, when schools full of tearful teachers let open their doors for the summer, and Dan Gutman releases his new series of the triumphant trilogy!
So keep that in mind. Whenever you’re bored on summer break, go to the bookstore and pick up a new Weirder School book! Keep a book in your heart, readers, especially this summer!!!
