Review for Odd Dog Out
A cute book about being different and how you shouldn’t feel sad about it but embrace it!
I was absolutely delighted that one of my libraries added this book to their collection, I have been meaning to read it for some time.
It is a book about a dog-filled world, everyone is the same… or are they? We quickly see that there is one little dog that is totally different from everyone, she is wearing bright colours (and depending on the season various accessories (like a swim ring in summer)). She doesn’t feel all too happy about her life in this world and decides to travel!
I could imagine that she may want to go away from it all. She got rejected from various things she wanted to do because she didn’t conform to the way everyone else dressed. She felt out of place because she was the only one daring to be different.
I loved to see her travel, I was wondering if she would find her place, or if something would happen which would make her turn around.
The end was terrific, I was so happy for our little MC, plus the book really send a positive (and needed) message to the world. Don’t be afraid to be different! Be who you want to be!
The book is delightfully illustrated. It took me a bit longer to read because I was just looking at the illustrations and find all the little details in them. Plus the colours! So pretty!
I would definitely recommend this book to everyone.
