For those who love the anarchic humour of Roald Dahl’s The Twits, this second book in The Odds series is a mucky, messy, marvellous read! The Odds are a family of Meddlers, otherwise known as Professional Pranksters and here they are faced with their greatest pranking challenge so far…an inspection by Mr Odd’s arch-enemy Mr Nobody. With the help of Dr Klampit and Granny Snott the Odds set out to out-prank the Inspector with outrageous and putrid results.

Synopsis

The Odds Strike Back by Adam Perrott

This time, The Odds face inspection by the Head Prankster to ensure they're still up to their meddling best. But the new man who'll be doing it is none other than Mr Nobody, sworn enemy of Mr Odd! This calls for a spectacular pranking plan...
