Description

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+

About Author

Anne Fine was the second UK Children's Laureate and has won numerous awards including the Carnegie Medal twice, for Goggle Eyes and Flour Babies. She has written many children's classics, perhaps most famously Madame Doubtfire, the basis for the Hollywood film Mrs Doubtfire. Anne says, "When I was young, it never occurred to me to be an author. But one day I couldn't get to the library in a snowstorm and so sat down and started on a novel. This was the right job for me - I have never stopped writing for more than a few weeks since." In 2003 she was awarded an OBE.
