Author’s note: The illustrations have been strategically placed and there are more pictures at the beginning of the book. Children who are not big on reading find a huge sense of achievement when they look at the number of pages they read in 20 minutes. As they continue, the illustrations are spaced further apart but the reader is hooked into an awesome story.


“Dear Mr Mac

 May I just say I am a huge fan of your book, The Super Weirdos. It is so funny and entertaining, probably the best book I have ever read. You have such a great sense of humour and I am really excited for your future books. My teacher bought it for our class and I was the first to read it. Everyone who has read the book thought it was awesome. I thought it was great.

Yours sincerely,
