Weird Kid Cover Image

Availability: Coming Soon - Available for Pre-Order Now
Published: HarperCollins - July 27th, 2021

Greg van Eekhout’s Weird Kid is the kind of book you could put in the hands of almost any young reader and soon you’d hear the soft chuckles of delight in seeing a fully-formed kid (12-year old Jake) with a bit of a shape-shifting problem trying to navigate middle school while not growing extra thumbs or feathers in front of his unsuspecting classmates. Unexplained sinkholes, butt jokes, blob-shifting goo and maybe-nefarious government agents ratchet up the action & humor. One of the many strengths of this book is the strong, non-romantic, bond between the comic-book loving duo of protagonist Jake and his friend, Agnes, who both relate to crime solving/investigative superheroes Night Kite and Star Hammer. There is so much to love packed in this book – family, music, guitars, comics, & of course, van Eekhout’s signature canine companion.

Local Witch Agnes and her vegetable companions’ peaceful lives are thrown into unease when a vampire moves in nearby! And only one vegetable can face him: poor anxiety-ridden Garlic! Garlic is tasked with confronting this vampire in order to help her friends, and her journey becomes one of finding her courage and discovering that people we don't know are not always as terrifying as our anxiety tells us. Absurdly cute and weirdly wonderful, with exemplary autumn vibes, this magical Witchy story is an all-ages, heart-filled adventure to sink your teeth into, with each character vibrant and completely lovable. I've never identified with vegetables so much in my life!
