My parents could have given me any first name at all, like John, Kevin, Shmevin ... ANYTHING. Instead I’m stuck with the worst name since Mrs Face called her son Bum.

Weir Do’s the new kid in school.

With an unforgettable name, a crazy family and some seriously weird habits, fitting in won’t be easy... But it will be funny!

        Gave it to my Grandchildren who laughed, sniggered at times & found it realistic. Read about relationships, good & bad and how to deal with bullying from the kids at school and teachers as well. All done in good humour and a good outcome.

          I had a great read and could just see Anh laughing as he composed and wrote it.

          What a great ambassador for his family and his heritage and for our great country.

          Any thing he writes I read !

                What do you get if you cross one of Australia's funniest comedian's the "happiest Refugee" with Diary of a Wimpy Kid? You get WeirDo the hilarious new children's book from Anh Do.

                It tells the story of a young kid called Weir who's last name just happens to be Do - he's first day at a new school doesn't start well when the teacher introduces him as WeirDo - but he isn't the new kid for long and quickly finds that being a bit weird isn't that bad.

                This is a quick read (well for me anyway) with some great cartoons to go along with the story. Its broken into little 'chapters' which is great for struggling readers. We got this book for the school library - I know its going to be very popular
