Book Review: Odd Dog Out by Rob Biddulph

odd dog out‘So blaze a trail. Be who you are.’

This is award winning author and illustrator Rob Biddulph’s third book and it is simply brilliant. This is the story of a little sausage dog who is different to all the rest. All she wants to do is to fit in and so she goes on a journey to somewhere where she does fit in. The journey proves to be one of discovery when although she fits in she meets a dog who doesn’t and she realises that its actually a good thing to be the odd one out.

This is a beautifully illustrated story which is a joy to read and really struck a chord here as one of our children is a bit of an individual. All children know an odd dog or they are the odd dog and so this is a great read to help them to understand thats its actually quite a good thing to dance to your own tune and there is nothing wrong with being an individual.

If you’re looking for a bright, colourful, engaging read which will help your children to deal with an every day issue or have a child that just likes dogs then this is a great addition to your bookshelf. We enjoyed reading it and I love the line i’ve included above, it could be a great little phrase to copy out and remind yourself and your children of everyday!
