Maurecia Chapter Illustration

Illustration by Adam McCauley

"Maurecia" is the ninth chapter of Sideways Stories From Wayside School. After Maurecia has tried all the ice cream flavours, she no longer likes ice cream. So, Mrs. Jewls makes ice cream for everyone, with one of each flavor named after the children themselves. The flavors of the students lead to be a problem as Maurecia kept trying to bite Todd's arm to get that "special flavor". Maurecia-flavored ice cream is the only ice cream Maurecia couldn't taste as it was her flavor and it's what Maurecia tastes when she is not eating anything.


Memorable Quotes

  • "Everybody liked Maurecia - except Kathy, but then she didn't like anyone."
  • "At first, she brought chocolate ice cream every day. But she soon tired of chocolate ice cream. So she started bringing vanilla. But she got tired of vanilla, too. Then she got tired of strawberry, fudge ripple, butter pecan, pistachio, and burgundy cherry, in that order. And then a terrible thing happened. Maurecia got tired of ice cream."

Notes & Trivia

  • Maurecia's favourite flavour of ice cream is Todd. This is played up in the cartoon where she's in love with him.
