Oddfellow's Orphanage

By: Emily Winfield Martin
Imprint: Yearling
ISBN: 9780375870941
2014-01-28 - $7.99

New York Times bestselling author Emily Winfield Martin brings a strange and wonderful place to life with her unique style of both art and writing.

What do an onion-headed boy, a child-sized hedgehog, and a tattooed girl have in common? They are all orphans at Oddfellow's Orphanage! This unusual and charming chapter book tells an episodic story that follows a new orphan, Delia, as she discovers the delights of her new home. From classes in Cryptozoology and Fairy Tale Studies to trips to the circus, from Annual Hair Cutting Day to a sea monster-sighting field trip, things at Oddfellows are anything but ordinary . . . except when it comes to friendships. And in that, Oddfellows is like any other school where children discover what they mean to each other while learning how big the world really is.
