Review: Weirdo #2

Anh Do's story about Weir, whose surname happens to be Do (get it? WeirDo?) is full of fun.

Weirdo's family is a little weird. His Dad can burp-sing, his Mum is obsessed with bargains and his grandad is a magician: he can make his false teeth disappear. Even Weir's pets are a bit odd.

When Bella invites Weir to her birthday party, he agonises in the supermarket over what to get her. It's definitely not the itchy bum cream...

Can Weir survive his little brother's cleaning phase? Will Bella ever see Weir for the nice guy he is? And what about Weir's amazing drawing skills?

It doesn't matter which WeirDo book you start with, they're all created to make you chuckle. In fact, all four would be the perfect gift for anyone gaining confidence in their reading who loves to laugh.
