Hamish McCorkle has a very odd family. His grandmother is half
dragon, his father plays strange musical instruments, his mother is
a yodelling tram conductor, and Hamish himself can talk to birds.
When his Uncle Weaver (the black sheep of the family) pays a visit on
Hamish's ninth birthday, the family know he's up to no good. But it's
not until Hamish rescues his sister Eugenie from the clutches of
Weaver and the amazing Eye Spy that the McCorkles realise exactly
what Weaver's up to.
Eugenie McCorkle thinks she's the only normal member of her
very odd family. But when she dyes her hair green just before
her twelfth birthday, she sets off a strange chain of events.
Together with her half-dragon grandmother and her brother Hamish
(who can talk to birds), Eugenie uncovers a mystery from the past.
But evil Uncle Weaver - the black sheep of the family - has his own
plans for the powers unleashed by Eugenie.
Granny Firewall is half dragon, and the oldest of the very odd McCorkle

Together with her grandchildren Hamish and Eugenie, she travels back
in time to the once glorious Frivolity Theatre, where she helps the
Dandy Nongs with their present troubles. But evil Uncle Weaver is still
lurking behind the scenes ...
