The Lovereading4Kids comment

Entertainingly spooky and delightfully peculiar, Jonny Smith recounts the problem he has on his round when it comes to delivering in Weird Street. He knows he shouldn’t really be frightened of the people who live there but trying even to find the front door of Dr Sphinx’s house can prove pretty tricky. An entertaining and complete first short book.
