Have you ever put down a drink, gone to do something else, and come back to find the drink is nowhere to be seen? That's the Odds. Mrs Odd, Mr Odd and the twins, Edgar and Elsie are a family of Professional Pranksters. They delight in making mischief, and playing tricks on each other, or on the unsuspecting residents of the town of Trott. But they meet their match in the Plopwells - a seemingly unflappable couple whose dastardly plans make the Odds look like a bunch of goody-goodies. Can the Odds work together to defeat the fiendish pair?
