The Odds Strike Back!

Have you ever fallen flat on your face when you’re carrying an ice-cream?

That’s the Odds at work! A family of Professional Pranksters who love nothing more than making mischief for the townspeople of Trott.

But when the Odds face inspection by the Head Pranker to ensure they're still up to their meddling best, they are in for a shock. The inspector is none other than Mr Nobody, sworn enemy of Mr Odd! 

This will call for a spectacular pranking plan…

The Odds

Have you ever put down a drink, gone to do something else, and come back to find the drink is nowhere to be seen?

THE ODDS tells the story of a family of Meddlers (or Professional Pranksters) who delight in making mischief. Their job is to make life as miserable as possible for the people around them by playing pranks and tricks on them. They are called the Odds.

The Odd family— Mrs Odd, Mr Odd and the twins, Edgar and Elsie — love this work and aren’t happy at all when they meet their match in the Plopwells. Mr and Mrs Plopwell are a seemingly unflappable couple whose dastardly plans include bulldozing the Odd’s home to make way for their monstrous Mega Market.

Can the Odd’s find a way to prank the Plopwells or will they end up looking like a bunch of goody-goodies?
