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.

This calls for a spectacular pranking plan...
