Synopsis

Oddly Normal Book 1 by Otis Frampton, Otis Frampton

The text contains some sophisticated vocabulary and literary references (there is a vampire named Bram, for instance), while remaining accessible. Fignation is a richly imagined world of fantastical creatures. The drawings throughout are engaging and make good use of moody, saturated colors. A recreation of an Oddly Normal collection published in 2006 that expands upon the original story and has reimagined illustrations. VERDICT This is Frampton's fully realized vision for Oddly Normal; it is worth adding to any collection, even those that already contain the earlier edition. - School Library Journal Frampton's art is refreshingly quirky, with strong lines and bold use of color. The world he creates is full of fun and whimsy, and kids will easily relate to Oddly's struggle to become comfortable in her own skin. This will quickly become a favorite among comics fans. - Booklist Meet Oddly Normal, a ten-year-old girl with pointed ears and green hair - a half-witch who will be the first to tell you that having a mother from a magical land called Fignation, also known as the Wicked Witch of the West and a father from Earth doesn't make it easy to make friends at school! On her tenth birthday, she blows out the candles on her birthday cake and makes a disastrous wish. Now, Oddly must travel to Fignation to uncover the mystery of her parents' disappearance. Join Oddly as she navigates a strange new school, teenage angst, monstrous bullies, and Evil itself on an unforgettable fantasy adventure through the vibrant world of Fignation in Oddly Normal. A charming and relatable fish-out-of-water tale. -- Hope Larson, A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel
