The Weirds are a most unusual family in every way; mum is a stunt woman, dad is a scientist with a habit of blowing big things up and gran is just a little bit magical. And then there are the children…Three hilarious stories about the very unusual things the Weird’s get up and how they affect everyone around them – especially the Primms who have the misfortune to live next door.

Meet the Weirds is the first in a trilogy - the second is Wildly Weird and the third is Weird Happenings - and there are extracts available for all three!

Synopsis

Meet the Weirds by Kaye Umansky

The Weird family move in next door and Pinchton Primm is fascinated by their very unconventional way of life! Re-jacketed in a stylish new package! Meet the Weird family. Mrs Weird is a stunt woman. Mr Weird is a mad scientist who has an unfortunate habit of blowing up houses. Then there's the children who run wild with their black cat, Ginger. Basically, they're all - well, weird. When they move next door to the Primms, who like nothing more than to be neat and tidy, things look like they might get a little messy! First in a series of riotous comedies.
