Quirky tales of derring-do and mystery, from a much-loved author and multi award-winning author. Perfect to thrill and chill.
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!
