LoveReading View on Tales from Weird Street

Interest Age 8+ Reading Age 8   Three young friends pass a sunny day telling each other stories of some of the strange things that have happened in their street, and what stories they are: each one so cleverly constructed, so skilfully told that it builds almost imperceptibly to a climax that will leave readers gasping. The first two stories are genuinely chilling and dark, fortunately the final story takes us back into the sunshine, and a happy ending, if a distinctly uncanny one. Anne Fine is one of our most brilliant authors for children and these stories, simple and super-readable as their sticker says, will stay with readers for far longer than the time it takes to read them. ~ Andrea Reece

Tales from Weird Street Synopsis

The children of Weir(d) Street are lazing about one sunny day when they challenge each other to tell stories of all the odd goings-on in their neighbourhood. A grandfather's guilt at the long-ago death of his twin brother, a young waiter whose rude customers get more than they bargain for, and a hard-working boy who finds himself blessed by a golden-haired stranger - the Weird Street tales are full of drama and suspense!

Particularly suitable for struggling, reluctant and dyslexic readers aged 8+
