Perfect for kids who dislike reading. Give them the Weirdo series and they will get hooked on reading! Trust me, my anti-reading little brother is now a lover of books.
So Much Fun!
The WeirDo books always make me smile and this one was no exception. I don't care what Weir and his friends and family get up to because no matter what, I feel like the world is a brighter, shinier place after spending some time with them.
Anh 'Can-Do-No-Wrong' Do has done it again in Messy Weird! The Do family have just moved house and there are a lot of chores to complete. With Mother's Day just around the corner, Weir realises he doesn't have enough money to get his Mum a special present. Armed with a list of chores, the promise of pocket money and friends Bella and Henry to add some laughs, Weir sets out to make his Mum proud of him.
Including plenty of the quirky illustrations I've come to love in Anh Do's books and the splashes of colour amongst the black and white (this book features bright yellow), the kids do their best as they deal with an exploding vacuum, a washing machine disaster and other funny household mishaps. They even find instructions for buried treasure!
My favourite illustration puts a new spin on a wild goose chase, with jet powered roller skates and a skateboard ridden by geese with Viking helmets. I just love the way illustrator Jules Faber brings Anh's WeirDo-ness to life.
I'm ready for book 11 now!
A great story
I loved the book from the very beginning and every page made me wanna see the next one. I was eager to see what happened later in the book when reading it. The pictures were great and I love what the author did with the words. I can't think of anything bad about it. P.S The colour of the book finished my idea of making a rainbow out of the Weirdo book collection - like a cherry on a piece of cake.
