Somewhere in the middle of nowhere, lies the seaside town of Fairhaven. Just past the harbour, if you turn right, you come to a network of streets; and right in the middle is a very posh part called Uppity Square. Here the Kiljoy family live. There's Mr. and Mrs. Kiljoy, who are very posh; but their children aren't quite so posh. Imogen and Winifred are four-year-old twins. Not only are they very spoilt and very annoying, they just can't stand their big six-year-old brother, Thomas. At least he is not exactly big and most people call him Teeny, but he has a really big problem, which leads to lots of other problems. Read on to find out what they were and if he found a way out of them all . . .
