Graphic novel spotlight - Odd Duck

Odd Duck by Cecil Castellucci and Sara Varon

A fusion picture book graphic novel, this book has a surprisingly broad audience. The main characters are self confident. They like what they like and care very little what others think. Castellucci and Varon really celebrate individuality and "oddness" in this little book. A great companion to David Shannon's A Bad Case of Stripes, Odd Duck presents a different perspective on being yourself and the desire to fit in. The art style is a bit on the quirky side but this really adds to the charm.
