Add Your Comments | Add to MyBookList | Email Review
Oddfellow's Orphanage is the whimsical tale of Oddfellow Bluebeard and the charming band of misfits who live with him. The orphans are quite unique. Delia is a mute albino, Imogen is covered in tattoos, Ollie has an onion for a head, and Hugo is most certainly a hedgehog. They live in an enormous brick house, whose grounds are covered in bushes shaped like sea monsters and other mythical creatures. During their lessons, they learn fairy tales and astronomy, and in the afternoons are entertained by a family of dancing bears. Throughout the book the plucky orphans face challenges, go on adventures, and learn that a person's true family is not always the one that they are born into.

Commenter: Anya, grade 5
This is a reasonable book for people who do NOT like mysteries. I'm warning you that this is a loser/winner kind of story. Has to do with this kid who is able to charve...
