Summary

Woody wants to get un-weird - and fast! And he'll find help in the most unlikely of places. 

Woody is forever worried about being different. He thinks himself weird and a bit of a wuss, and two bullies, Della and Casey, make sure he doesn't forget that. It doesn't help that his mum is slightly bonkers. She dresses up as a sheep for a living - mostly for her job as a children's entertainer. And not to mention the fact that she forces Woody to wear old granny jumpers that she finds down the local charity shop. Gooner the dog doesn't help either, always getting Woody in some awkward, smelly and rather messy situations! 

But Woody's got a plan to get unweird - and fast! Just in time for his first day at secondary school. He starts off with some rules...'Don't listen to Mum about anything to do with your life, ever'...and...'don't wear old lady clothes'. And with the help of his way more normal, yet rather extravagant GlamMa and the discovery of his dad's peculiar lucky charm, he soon finds a new sense of charm, un-weirdness and a heap load of shenanigans come his way!

Great sense of humor!

“Fitting in” is the main topic of the story and totally relatable. Not only for kids! I am an adult and enjoyed the plot very much!

We all enjoyed it

We listened to the story in the car and so we got over a little bit slow start. After that the story flows nicely and things fall into the place. Great especially for my 11 and 12 year olds however the younger children enjoyed it too
