I applauded. Mum bowed. And Jake stuffed the cake into his vampire teeth-ed mouth and ran off to look for Dracula. All Phoebe wants is a normal family. But with a dad who keeps running away to the circus, an annoying younger brother who thinks he's a vampire, and a crackpot mum who reckons she's a comedian, 'normal' is a long way off. "Crackpot is very funny and happy, but sometimes sad and so real. Phoebe is super smart and her mum is crazy but fantastic." - Ashleigh Grimes "I loved Crackpot. It was interesting, funny and fabulous to read." - Briannah Mile "This is a delightful study of a girl coming to terms with her family, her place in it, and the inevitable friendship puzzles. It is a delight!" - Dr Virginia Lowe About the Author: In her past life - pre children - Fiona Trembath was a writer, producer and performer of comedy.
