With its spirit of adventure, Bookweirdest courts new readers and keeps Malcolm and Norman's devoted fans captivated.
Norman has woken up in a world that seems a lot like his own, but with some notable differences. Cats can talk, for example. His sister owns a horse, and, most shockingly, his father has gone. No one but Norman seems surprised by these developments. He's almost lulled into believing that it's all real until Malcolm, his best friend (who happens to be a stoat), arrives. Malcolm has some dark clues that persuade Norman that he must once and for all discover the secrets about Bookweird in order to save the day and his family.
PAUL GLENNON is the author of The Dodecahedron, which was a finalist for the 2006 Governor General's Literary Award for Fiction, and was selected as one of The Globe and Mail's 100 Best Books of the Year, as well as Bookweird and Bookweirder. He lives in Ottawa.
“One of the best books I ever read. Bookweirdest is the third book of a trilogy, but you don’t need to read the other books to enjoy this one.”
Praise for Bookweird:
"Brilliant . . . . The book's oddities, its strange sense of play, also come with an emphasis on heroism and a dash of paradox. What a delicious concept Bookweird is, and what a fantastic writer we have in Paul Glennon."
—The Globe and Mail
"Boys have trouble finding anything they care about between the covers of a book. Ottawa author Paul Glennon has a solution. Give 'em books filled with boy appeal--blood, guts and glory. . . . Glennon does a fine job in keeping the story moving, and he's terrific at family dynamics."
