9781926973456: Oddrey

From Blue Spruce Award winning author-illustrator Dave Whamond comes the story of Oddrey, a young girl who is a little bit different from everybody else. Every aspect of Oddrey’s world is a study in playful curiosity. Her adventures and flights of fancy, however, are often a source of some teasing at the hands of her classmates. Her technicolor snow sculpture has the rest of the playground gaping in disbelief. Her drawing of blue apples is met with a stern look from her teacher. But Oddrey, never one to let anything get her down, faces all of these discouragements with optimism and offhanded grace.

So when her class production of The Wizard of Oz is cast and Oddrey is given the rather spiritless role of a tree, she decides to make the best of the situation and vows to be the most unique tree ever. Sadly, her teacher has other ideas, and Oddrey dons an uninspired costume and sways in the back row. But when her classmates start forgetting their lines, knocking down props, and suffering from stage fright, Oddrey steps in to save the show not by stealing it, but by helping her classmates rise to the occasion.

About the Author:

Dave Whamond is the award-winning author of My Think-a-ma-Jink and a regular contributor to chickaDEE and OWL magazines. He also has a syndicated cartoon strip called Reality Check, which appears daily in a number of North American newspapers. He lives in Calgary.

From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 2-Oddrey is an independent thinker who likes to stand out from the crowd. Sometimes, though, she is lonely, and her uniqueness is not always appreciated by her teacher. Disappointed with her minor role in the class production of The Wizard of Oz, Oddrey rescues the performance when classmates forget lines, hide behind a prop, and experience a clumsy moment. Though her teacher is not appreciative of the child's additions to the play, her schoolmates are grateful. Later, they, too, find individual ways to express themselves, and Oddrey still manages to shine. Whamond's watercolors with black-line enhancements expand the narrative. Characters are depicted with disproportionally large heads, and the illustrations are filled with lots of activity and busy children. End pages, patterned with circles, show off an assortment of Oddrey's poses and facial expressions. A quick-paced, comical read.-Lynn Vanca, Freelance Librarian, Akron, OHα(c) Copyright 2011.
