Overview

“Funny and sweet, with a steely centre.” -Neil Gaiman, Newbery Medalist and New York Times bestselling author of The Graveyard Book and Coraline Nick is the shortest seventh-grader in the history of the world (he's pretty sure), doesn't fit in with any groups or clubs (who needs 'em?), and spends more time inside than outside his locker (they're roomier than you'd think). Things only get worse when a well-intentioned guidance counselor forces Nick to join the school's lamest club—along with fellow misfits Molly and Karl—in her quest to cure all three of their "peer allergies." What starts off as a reluctant band of hopeless oddballs morphs into an effective and empowered team ready to face whatever middle school throws at them, including bullies, awkward romance, zany adults, and a brave new world of surprising friendships. Renowned cartoonist Michael Fry brings an unforgettable cast of characters to life in an illustrated novel brimming with honesty, humor, and heart.

I give it 4.5 or 5 stars. But then I like Fry. If you and your kids like Over The Hedge (movie or comics), or if you know him from the old TV series, Committed, you'll like The Odd Squad, which branches out into some new territory for Fry. Aimed at tweens. Good for all ages.

The odd squad bully bait was about a boy named Nick, Molly, and Karl forming their own safety patrol to stop the bully named Roy. Nick and all the other children get picked on by Roy but especially Nick because he was the shortest. When they meet for a meeting their leader is the school janitor. They sneaked into the guidance office and took a look at his record. Read to find out what they did to stop Roy. I recommend this book because it made me laugh so hard. I liked the part where they disguised themselves, they all looked funny especially Karl (he was dressed as a tater tot) http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/bully-bait-michael-fry/1115869669?ean=9781423169246

Rating: 3.5 The Low Down: Nick might as well move into his school locker. He practically lives there, considering the number of times that Roy has stuffed him in it. Then the school counselor, Dr. Daniels, decides that there’s safety in numbers and makes Nick team up with the hugely tall Molly and the pudgy and guileless Karl. They all get bullied because they suffer from peer allergies, the counselor says. Thinking his crush will like him if he can best the bully, Nick decides to try and take care of Roy with the help of his new friends. But has he gone too far in his pursuit of justice and become a bully himself? Best Thang ‘Bout It: The story here is inventive and funny and will be devoured by kids from late elementary to middle school. The best character is the janitor, Mr. Dupree, who tells the Squad “true” stories to motivate them and quotes Shakespeare to make good points. Though the kids don’t always understand, Mr. Dupree knows that when they need to, they will. Bring the crazy. I Wanna Say: Hopefully this will be a series, as I didn't feel like we got to know Molly and Karl well at all. Well, we probably did with Karl; he's pretty WYSIWYG. And yes, it is inevitable that this book will be compared to the wildly popular Wimpy Kid series because of the subject matter and the drawings. While there are similarities, The Odd Squad will do just fine on its own. The Bottom Line: It’s a fun read for the middle grades. And if the drawings look familiar to you, Mr. Fry is one of the two people who work on the Over the Hedge comic. The Odd Squad: Bully Bait by Michael Fry was published today by Disney-Hyperion Books. A free copy of this book was given to Ink and Page in return for an honest review. Big thanks to NetGalley and the Publisher. Genre: Middle Grades Fiction Ages: 8 and up
