Characters[edit]

  • Arlo Jervis (A.J)
A.J. is the series' protagonist and the stories are told from his point of view. The character is friends with Ryan, Michael, Neil, and Alexia and his opening line in most of the books is: "My name is A.J. and I hate school." A.J. dislikes girls, especially Andrea, whom he calls a "little miss know it all". Andrea and A.J. secretly have a crush on each other that neither will admit. Some of A.J.'s favorite things are football, dirt bikes, and skateboarding.
  • Ryan Dole
This character is an African American boy who is one of A.J.'s best friends. He is known for eating things that nobody else will eat, such as school lunch, vegetables, and seat cushions (in Ms. Kormel is Not Normal!, he sprayed a bus seat cushion with ketchup and ate it). His mother is also the PTA president.
  • Michael Robinson
Michael is also one of A.J.'s best friends. He is notorious for never tying his shoes and he is portrayed as wearing glasses.
  • Neil Crouch aka nude kid
Neil is a character mistakenly perceived as a "nude kid". He made his first appearance in Mrs. Kormel Is Not Normal!, in which the school bus sustains a flat tire during a detour to pick up the "nude kid", who turns out to actually be the "new kid". His appearance is similar to Michael, as they both wear glasses and have the same type of hair. The character owns a pet ferret, called “Mr. Wiggles”, and the ferret is the president of Ella Mentry School in Mr. Macky Is Wacky! and the class president of third grade in Mayor Hubble is in Trouble!.
  • Alexia Juarez
Introduced in the third series, in Miss Child Has Gone Wild!, this female character is portrayed as a tomboy—Alexia first appears riding a skateboard into Mr. Granite's class and she always wears a cap. According to A.J., the main character, Alexia is "pretty cool", even though she is a girl. Alexia also likes and dislikes what A.J. likes and dislikes; for example, she hates school, but likes eating pizza and skateboarding. She sits at the boys' table during lunch. In Mr. Harrison Is Embarrassin' she shows affection to A.J by asking him to hold her hand.
  • Andrea Young
She is one of two primary antagonists, usually corrects A.J. and the other boys when they make mistakes while talking, and occasionally makes the statement, "Boys are dumbheads." However, the character is depicted displaying affection towards the protagonist, as she writes, "I'll miss you, Arlo", in Mrs. Dole is out of Control! and asks A.J. to hold her hand in Mr. Harrison is Embarrasin'! In "Mayor Hubble is in Trouble!" Andrea wrote "I LIKE A.J.!" in her diary. Also, in Ms. Holly is too Jolly!, she kisses A.J when they unknowingly happen to meet together under mistletoe. In Miss Klute is a Hoot, Andrea calls A.J a "genius" which to Ryan and Michael means she likes A.J. Andrea is portrayed as a student who is eager to please her teachers and she always raises her hand in response to any questions that are asked during classes. Her mother is the PTA vice-president of Ella Mentry School.
  • Emily
Emily is Andrea Young's accomplice. E

She agrees with everything Andrea says, causing A.J. to think that the two are the most annoying students he has ever met. Emily is sometimes called a "crybaby", as she always cries and "runs out of the room" when A.J. says something mean to her. Emily has appeared in every book except Mr. Sunny Is Funny!

  • Mrs. Daisy
First called "Miss Daisy", this character was A.J.'s 2nd grade teacher. She first appeared in Miss Daisy is Crazy, a book in which she is the main character. Mrs. Daisy ironically purports to hate school and to lack knowledge in order to motivate her students to learn. One of the character’s prominent traits is her love of bonbons. She is married to Mr. Macky in Mr. Louie Is Screwy and is portrayed as giving birth to a child, named "Jackie Macky", during the season of summer in that book. Miss Daisy is set to appear in the new book "Miss Daisy Is Still Crazy"
  • Mr. Granite
The character of Mr. Granite is not only A.J.'s 3rd grade teacher, but he is from an alien planet known as Etinarg (Granite spelled backward). Mr. Granite is from another planet—he tried to return, but his spaceship crashed. Mr. Granite is also a long-distance swimmer.
  • Mr. Klutz
The character of Mr. Klutz is the principal of Ella Mentry School. Mr. Klutz is constantly portrayed undertaking strange acts, like kissing a pig, after he instructs the school's students to concurrently embark on a similarly unusual activity. In Dr. Carbles Is Losing His Marbles, the character was dismissed, but returned at a later stage in the book.
  • Ella Mentry
This character is the woman whom Ella Mentry School is named after. She occasionally visits the school in the three series in the books, Ms. LaGrange is strange!, Mr. Harrison is Embarrassin' and Ms. Cuddy is nutty and she visits always coincide with a mishap at the school.
  • Milton Carbles
This character is the head of the Board of Education and sometimes visits Ella Mentry School, but his visits, like those of the character Mrs. Ella Mentry, always coincide with a mishap at the school. In Dr. Carbles Is Losing His Marbles, the character tires of the consistent problems that arise during his visits and fires Mr. Klutz; however, Mr. Klutz returns to his position as the school's principal and Dr. Carbles is, instead, dismissed by the superintendent.
  • Mayor Hubble
This character is the former mayor of the town portrayed in the series. In Mr. Burke is Berserk!, gold is discovered in the playground. Mayor Hubble attempts to steal it but is caught and arrested.

Officer Spence, the security guard, arrests him for "trespassing, stealing yard signs, and contributing to the delinquency of minors". It is also noted that a tree fell on his house (not to mention his bathroom) while he was on the toilet.
  • Officer Spence
The crazy security guard at Ella Mentry School. In Officer Spence Makes No Sense!, he goes around the school arresting all the teachers and faculty for "being a drug addict dealer" (Mrs. Cooney, the nurse, has aspirin bottles in her cabinet), "saying 'butt' in a children's book" (which is not illegal, and the word was actually 'but'), and "being an illegal alien" (because the teacher, Mr. Granite, supposedly comes from a different planet).
