The Undys One Wacky Week by Michael Wagner


The Undys One Wacky Week by Michael Wagner

In this fifth instalment in this hilarious and endearing series, it's community week at the Undys' flats. Meet the Undys' weird and wonderful neighbours and laugh out loud as they tackle the world's strongest man (almost), try to outwit each other in a wife-carrying race and their careers as 'mannies' makes national TV. As always, the pace is frenetic, the humour is laugh-out-loud and the reader is encouraged by short chapters and an End of Chapter Reward Scheme which provides inducements such as word puzzles, join the dots, how to draw an excellent face, and a picture puzzle.
