REVIEW OF WEIRDER BY MELISSA BRYAN - "I really liked the has a fresh new store line. I feel in love with the characters, especial the bearded lady...-What a Lady. I don't know how she could fall in love with Pinches, like I said...What a Lady. It was fun going to the "Carnival" and getting to be part of the troupe...going behind the curtains and being able to be part of the family. I could almost smell the cotton candy and popcorn. You showed us that it is true dedication and love that is needed to be a carnie. The only problem I had was it was too short...I wanted to be a carnie longer. I want to see how it turns out...hopefully there will be a Weirder 2...Weirdest. Thanks Chad, I had a ball."
