Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The premise of this fractured mythology romp is fabulous, the names and character descriptions are inspired, and the idea just right for the target age range, but it somehow falls flat. Odd Gods has all the right ingredients and some readers will enjoy the banter between the Odds and the near nonstop fart jokes; other readers will find the story a bit slow and forced. There’s a lot to enjoy here for the right audience. Adam J.B. Lane's abundant cartoon-like illustrations help make this a good choice for reluctant readers.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
