Author and illustrator Rob Biddulph made waves with his rhyming picture book Odd Dog Out, winning him the BSC Festival of Literature Picture Book Award. Tom Hardy read this book in the CBeebies Bedtime Story television show.
“For busy dogs, a busy day
of busy work and busy play.
They all blend in. No dog stand out.
But wait. Look closer. Can you see
one dog behaving differently?”
Odd Dog is a dachshund that does not fit in with the rest of the crowd. She wears a brightly colored hat and sports a rainbow scarf wrapped around her body. She does indeed stand out in a world of dogs that act and dress the same.
Longing to blend in with other dogs, Odd Dog travels to a new town, the Fabulous Doggywood. She is so excited to see the other dogs are just like her! Finally, Odd Dog found a place to fit in, or did she?
Odd Dog Out is a delightful book that is sure to dazzle young children. This is a fun and enchanting story with a positive message: have confidence in yourself. Embrace the qualities that make you uniquely you
