I put "the textbook of that class..." Can this be used?

The textbook for that class is too thin—was not accepted

Because "very X" and "too X" are different things, which are expressed differently in Japanese as well as English.

(too thin = うすすぎ)

what is the japanese for "for that" ??

The の indicates the textbook "belongs to" the class.

I think "slim" should be accepted.

Is there a difference between using "hosoi" and "usui"?
