Review

So what exactly *is* normal anyway?We're not even sure there is such a thing and that's why we're overjoyed that Steven Butler and Jarvis have collaborated to create this wonderful book entitled 'Odd Bods'.

In this rather raucous rhyming tale, we meet a number of characters, each with their own quirks.

Celebrating an alphabet of every weird and wonderful child out there, whoever they are and where ever they may be.

It acknowledges their foibles, recognises their quirks and gives a massive high five to their oddities.
From smelly Edie to Percy who's mute, there's someone in here that many of us can relate to.

Butler's punchy rhyme is supported effortlessly by Jarvis's almost luminous palette. Inspired use of block colour backgrounds and vibrant pops of colour make for an engaging read. Coupled with the jaunty cadence of this ditty, these two elements carry the reader through this humorous song-like tale with ease.

It's a story that's sure to spark conversation and hopefully highlight the wealth of oddities that exist among us all.

With diverse themes including humour, inclusion, friendship and surrealism, this makes for a great read for all audiences, young and old.

The ending is both sublime and unexpected and we can't wait to share this with our pre schoolers.

We get through a LOT of books. The girls each have their ever shifting favourites, currently the Snail and the Whale and I need a wee have been frequently requested.

This week we were sent Odd Bods, a rhyming story that introduces a host of bizarre children. The press release has this to say:

In this hilarious new rhyming tale, comedic genius Steven Butler and incredible illustrator talent Jarvis take us on a raucous romp through the quirks and oddities of a whole alphabet of children!
The weirdest and most wonderful personalities play together in a wacky world, encouraging children and parents alike to celebrate strangeness and embrace individuality.
For anyone and everyone with a beloved wild child!

Odd bods is a joy to read. The rhymes are natural and the mixture of character traits on display from the odd bods are interesting and entertaining. The odd bods are nicely drawn, showing great amounts of character in a single image. The girls have asked to read it several times this week, a very good sign! There are certain books that they ask me to read them that fill me with dread.

Odd bods is definitely not one of them, it's a real treat!

I'm pretty sure I've never been called 'normal' so this book was perfect. Odd Bods is a celebration of every weird and wild child. Written by Steven Butler with colourful and quirky illustrations by Jarvis it was a joy to read.

As soon as we started to read this Clem was attracted by all the wonderfully colourful pages. Working its way through the alphabet from Ava to Ramona to Percy and Franklyn, it celebrates each childs oddness and weird ways. I enjoyed the rhymes, Clem loved all the colours and there were even a few ewws.

As someone who likes being weird this book is definitely a favourite of mine. Since it arrived we've read it quite a few times so I'm guessing that Clem enjoyed it too.
