In the village of Eel-Smack-by-the-Bay is a lighthouse on the hill. It should be a calm and peaceful setting, but it's not.

The lighthouse is home to the Bellweathers — the most eccentrically odd family you've ever met. Spider is a lover of dangerous endangered animals, the triplets are always "making art" and Dr. Bellweather is the very picture of a mad scientist.

Tristan Benway, the Bellweathers' butler, is desperate to escape this madhouse and is counting down the days until his departure. "Leaving the Bellweathers" is his tell-all memoir, which he hopes will fund his retirement.

Quirky and offbeat, this debut novel is hilarious. And its relatable characters and witty dialogue will appeal to parents and children alike. Imaginative and full of heart, the Bellweathers' zany exploits will have readers asking for more.
