9781606843741: Odd, Weird & Little

Readers who love Andrew Clements, Dan Gutman, Gordon Korman, and Tom Angleberger will find this charming, funny, easy-to-read middle-grade novel from the beloved Patrick Jennings an absolute hoot!

When the new kid joins his class, Woodrow agrees with his schoolmates--Toulouse is really weird. He's short - kindergarten short - dresses in a suit like a grandpa, has huge eyes, and barely says a word. But Woodrow isn't exactly Mr. Popularity. The frequent target of the class bully himself, he figures that maybe all Toulouse needs is a chance.

And when the two are put together in gym to play volleyball, they make quite the team. Toulouse can serve, set, and spike like a pro. He really knows how to fly around the court. But when the attention and teasing switch back to Woodrow, he learns that the new kid is great at something else: being a friend.

Full of heart and laughs, Odd, Weird, and Little is another winner from the author of the state-list favorite, Guinea Dog.

About the Author:

Patrick Jennings blasted onto the children's book scene with his critically acclaimed Faith and the Electric Dogs, which received numerous starred reviews and is now in film development. Known for his wide range of topics and styles, he has turned his focus to writing silly accessible stories that will appeal to middle-schoolers, including his recent Egmont releases Guinea Dog and its sequel, Guinea Dog 2Lucky CapInvasion of the Dognappers, and My Homework Ate My Homework. A former resident of Bisbee, Arizona, Jennings now lives in Washington State. You can visit him at www.patrickjennings.com.

From Booklist:

Despite, or maybe because of, the concealing gloves and bowler hat that enigmatic new arrival Toulouse Hulot wears to school every day, 10-year-old outsider, Woodrow, is compelled to be his friend. The two discover shared interests both in fly-fishing (though Toulouse’s catches never seem to make it into his creel) and in coping with the attentions of class bullies Garrett and Hubcap. Jennings never comes out with an explicit revelation, but readers would have to be comatose to miss the huge clues—from the first letters of the title words and all the chapter headings on—that Toulouse is no ordinary, or even human, student. Eventually, separate confrontations by Toulouse and, later, several classmates cow the bullies with unrealistic ease. Still, in general the modeled coping strategies are at least feasible, and as for Toulouse, the continuing cluelessness of all the grown-ups and children (even Woodrow doesn’t grasp the truth about his predatory buddy until the end) add broad overtones of hilarity. Grades 3-5. --John Peters
