The Lovereading4Kids comment

A brilliantly funny odd couples comedy from one of our very funniest authors for children. The Primms and the Weirds are totally different: fish-eating, hedge-trimming, neighbourhood-watching, the Primms are as strait-laced as they come, while the Weirds are just, well, weird! Mum is a stunt woman, dad’s an inventor, Gran is very, very small and just what is making all the thumping sounds in the attic? Despite their differences, when the Weirds move in next door, Pinch Primm becomes friends with Ott Weird, and their adventures make wonderfully comic reading. There are three different stories, each is short, very funny and with a momentum that keeps the pages turning right until the end. Packed with treats, including Chris Mould’s black and white illustrations. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Just Plain Weird by Kaye Umansky

A silly and riotous tale of the craziest family you know from the master of laughs and fun, Kaye Umansky! The Primms may be the neatest, tidiest family ever. But when the Weirds move in next door - with their explosive experiments, daring stunts, and black cat Ginger - Pinchton Primm's quiet life will never be the same. Buckle up for a whirlwind adventure with a family like no other!
