Meet Weir Do… and nope, that’s not a typo. That’s his real name! WEIRDO is a delightful series about the trials and travails of elementary school and belonging that parents and kids can enjoy together:

Book 1: Weir is the new kid in school, and with a name like his it’s going to be hard making friends and fitting in… especially when you also have an equally weird family to deal with!

Book 2: Even Weirder! Weir’s back and even weirder! How will he keep cool with a school trip to the zoo coming up and the birthday party of his biggest crush?

Book 3: Extra Weird! Dad’s working on his cool dance moves for the local talent search, while Weir’s trying out for the school soccer team! Will Weir score a goal, or fall flat?

Book 4: Super Weird! Dad’s training to become a firefighter, while Weir’s busy with Pet Day! Will FiDo and Blockhead freeze up or find fame?

Fitting in won’t be easy… but it will be funny! Meet WEIRDO!

 

He’s HotDog! The coolest wiener dog you’ll ever meet! HOTDOG’s adventures, alongside his best friends Lizzie the Lizard and Kevin the Cat, shows us that the littlest heroes have the biggest heart.

Book 1: HotDog, Lizzie, and Kevin have to help a baby bird find his missing mom! Can they handle cows, penguins, dirty diapers and one really rude karate-chopping rooster on the way?

Book 2: Party Time! It’s Kevin the Cat’s birthday party! YAY! But that rooster and his pal donkey are out to crash the party. BOO! HotDog to the rescue!!!

HOTDOG keeps on trying, no matter what!
