Weirdo 13. Scholastic, 2019. ISBN: 9781742997933.
(Age: 7-10) Recommended. Themes: Humour, Wrestling, Careers. Anh Do has done it again with this fabulous, fun 13th adventure featuring the Do family. Great illustrations and a catchy theme are sure to engage any reader who want to relax and have a laugh. In this episode of the family's life, Weir Do is determined to win tickets to see The Block, the coolest wrestler in the business. His family can't afford the tickets but he has a chance of winning some by designing the funniest costume for Funny Friday at school. Can he succeed?
As always, both the narrative and the illustrations are hilarious and kids who are fans of this series will be thrilled to see another one available. Children new to the fun drawings and characters will have no difficulty picking up the story and will be keen to find others about the Do family. Some different careers are explored as parents come to school to explain where they work, and much fun surrounds wrestling, The Block the champion, and the identity of The Human Torna-Do.
This is a very humorous addition to the series, one that all children (and adults, like me) will enjoy.
