''Klutz'' is a children’s book that was made in 1996 and was written and illustrated by {{Henrik Drescher}}.

The Klutz family has always been clumsy since the dawn of time (literally, their earliest ancestor was a caveman who was very clumsy). They would spend their days falling down the stairs and falling on their faces whenever they go out. The family’s clumsiness is caused by their large black boots that they never took off for any occasion. However, the Klutz family’s lives change when they crashed into a circus caravan being run by Professor Squirmworm and Professor Squirmworm was so impressed by their clumsiness that he hired them as circus performers!

!!''Klutz'' includes examples of:

* {{Catchphrase}}: ''"Lumpish Yokels!"'' as called out by the Klutz's neighbors whenever they make fun of their clumsiness.
* CloudCuckooLander: The Klutz family seems to be oblivious to their endless clumsiness, even though it’s been running in their family for many generations.
* TheFool: The entire Klutz family can be considered this due to their clumsiness, especially after they joined the circus.
* GrotesqueGallery: The Klutz family themselves have wobbly limbs and colorfully striped noses. Also, most of the other characters in this book either have wobbly limbs like the Klutz family or have realistic newspaper clippings pasted on their heads.
* ItRunsInTheFamily: The Klutz family’s clumsiness has been running in their family for many generations including having a relative who was known for sinking the Titanic.
* {{Slapstick}}: Most of the Klutz family's clumsiness involves them falling down the stairs and causing mayhem to their neighbors whenever they go out.
* SurrealHumor: The fact that the Klutz family's large black shoes caused their clumsiness in the first place.
