Review by Booklist Reviews

In this fifth My Weirder School outing, slick Hollywood producer Ms. Beard arrives at A.J.'s Ella Mentry School to shoot a reality show about its teachers. To attract viewers, she decides they'll compete in several events—from "Ella Mentry Idol" and "Dancing with the Teachers" to mud wrestling. Though education takes a backseat for the week, school's no snooze as teacher teams battle it out to avoid elimination. The satire may resonate more with those familiar with the real versions of the reality shows, but narrator A.J.'s peppy account, the teachers' comical antics, plentiful hyperbolic humor, and cartoonlike illustrations make for an entertaining, fast-paced read that will draw series fans.

When a reality show begins filming at their school, the students ignore Ms. Beard's recommendation that they behave in a "normal" way so that they look good on television and win the grand prize, an all-expenses-paid vacation and a year's supply of pork sausage. By the author of Mr. Burke Is Berserk! Simultaneous. 75,000 first printing.
