Kip wakes up to find herself surrounded by various characters from her father’s drawings, her favorite TV show, A beloved book, and even her nightmares. Referred to as “The Odds,” this cast of characters has a lot of surprises and mischief in store for Kip and her father.
Matt Stanton’s graphic novel was a hit at our house, with kids and parents alike. Stanton manages to pack colorful illustrations and humor throughout the book while simultaneously addressing grief, anxiety, and bullying. And while Kip and her father may be at odds with the cast of characters at the beginning, they recognize that they are all in this together.
This is a huge thumbs up from my young reviewers, and we can’t wait to see what other books about The Odds Stanton may come out with.
