The Strange Tail Of Oddzilla by Lori R. Lopez

This is a story about being Odd. A monster named Oddzilla, to be precise, who dreams of being normal. Even worse, he crawled from a pot of Anything Soup. It's his first day of being monstrous, and he has been rejected both by people and the other monsters. He converses with the Moon and a Library, who further reject him. While trying to find his place in the world, he gets kicked out of Welcome for being too weird. Then things really get odd! A gang of pirates nab Oddzilla for their traveling Monster Carnival. He thought he had problems, but that's where his troubles truly begin . . . with the evil Captain Snydely Wick and Morris Crudd, as well as his fellow oddballs and oddities who compete to be the oddest. Until he meets his Number One Fan. Lori R. Lopez -- author of THE DARK MISTER SNARK, THE FAIRY FLY, AN ILL WIND BLOWS and more -- has created an "oddyssey" of wordplay and wit for all ages. THE STRANGE TAIL OF ODDZILLA presents an absurd fable bursting with whimsy and melancholy and puns. In fact, the main character is practically a pun, isn't he? There probably isn't a sensible word in it either, so it wouldn't make a lot of sense to read this book. If you feel you must, you can also look for an Illustrated Print Edition with very unusual artwork by the author. THE STRANGE TAIL OF ODDZILLA received Honorable Mentions for Best Cover, Best Illustrations, Best Humor from the 2017 Purple Dragonfly Book Awards.

About the Author

Lori R. Lopez was born on a jellybean farm in Wisconsin. At least, that’s the official rumored version, but nobody can say for sure except that she was born somewhere. Probably somewhere else, where she isn’t now. The truth might be in the pudding, after all. And she does like pudding, but with coconut milk because she was once hit on the head by a coconut and then ate it.

Today she writes with invisible ink so nobody can steal her ideas, but then she forgets what she wrote and has to start over. That’s why she mumbles a lot about being late and behind schedule. Her memory really isn’t very good. It’s too bad she can’t get a new one. They haven’t invented that yet. When they do, she will be first in line. Or maybe last in line because she is often late for things. All she really knows for certain about her writing is that some of the words rhyme some of the time. Like that.

The author has also been doing artwork since caves had walls. Some of it is quite famous. You just can’t see it because she uses invisible finger-paint or ink. Not all finger-paint is made from fingers; she only uses coconut finger-paint from the same tree that once conked her. Or maybe it bonked her. The rest was herstory but it’s Top Secret so keep it under your tophat. If you wear one. Lori does and has the most marvelous secrets beneath it. They’re invisible, however, so she isn’t very clear on what they are exactly . . .
