Weirdo 8. Scholastic Australia, 2017. ISBN 9781760276768
(Age: 8-12) Highly recommended. Superb! Anh makes Weir Do feel like your best pal. He has, as always, brought his many readers another thoroughly entertaining read in this, the 8th book in the series about the highly likeable Weir Do.
Oink-a-Doodle-Doooo! From pigs that aspire to be roosters, or run away to join the ballet (pigs in tutus), or Poppy knitting a mini beanie for Brian, the cactus, all Anh's usual appealing characters are here, including Bella, Grandma Do, Henry, Mullet and Wendy, who all keep the reader tickled and smiling until the last page is all-too-soon reached.
With wonderfully simple sketched illustrations, Really weird is carefully crafted, delightfully droll and should definitely appeal even to the most reluctant reader in the 8-12 years bracket.
