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+.
Tales from Weird Street is a book by Anne Fine for solo readers in the middle age group. It will be published by Barrington Stoke on 15th February 2017.
