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

Wildly Weird by Kaye Umansky

Pinchton meets the newest member of the Weird family - the house plant. When they enter it into a local flower show, chaos and comedy ensue! Now re-jacketed in a stylish new package. A plant show? Yawn. Pinchton Primm thinks it'll be as boring as Sprout Surprise. But then the Weird family bring their house plant along - This plant is in a pot, but it's out of control - and it doesn't like losing competitions! The third brilliant book about the Weird family!
