Publisher's Summary

This is a very, very sad story. The characters suffer terrible tragedies. People die in unspeakable ways. Only a truly horrible person would be amused by their misfortune.

Nevertheless, it is kind of funny.

My advice is that you listen to this all by yourself. People can be judgy. 

If you’re a fan of A Series of Unfortunate Events, Edward Scissorhands, or the darkest bits of Roald Dahl, the Weirdie triplets - Barnacle, Garlic, and Melancholy - will feel like old friends. After being left behind when the entire estate of Deadeye Manor is packed up for a doomed vacation cruise, the triplets have to learn how to fend for themselves. (When a staff of 200 servants has taken care of your every need, even brushing your own teeth is a mountainous task.) From their time at the Our Lady of the Perpetual Side-Eye Orphanage to their adoptive home on picture-perfect Sunshine Circle, the Weirdies have a lot to learn about the world...but, at least, they have each other.

Hilarious

Such a fun and hilarious story in the vein of A Series of Unfortunate Events and The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place.
Kate Winslet was a marvellous narrator!

Deviously delightful

They say that truth is stranger than fiction so how clever to take our strange reality and tell it so cleverly that one could not help but laugh.
While there is a bunch in common with the Unfortunate Events series, Kate Winslet brings her award winning talent to a story (series?) that will warm the hearts of monsters and mothers alike.
I can't wait to see what else this author has up their sleeve.
