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! Author/illustrator Emily Martin has fleshed out the world of Oddfellow's with 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... bn.com
I loved this book so much. This is a charming read that will have you smiling long after you finish the book. I enjoyed all the adventures. From the bear family to how everyone forms a family, it was a great book. I loved reading how they celebrated Christmas, how they went to the circus. Imaginations come to life within these pages.
