Hilarious in a very middle school way, The Odd Squad is the latest comic illustrated novel a la Wimpy Kid or Dork Diaries to hit shelves I must say, it s a heap site better than those other two in my opinion In fact, this is sort of Lunch Lady meets Wimpy Kid a motley and unlikely collection of 3 misfits learns how to beat the bully with some behind the scenes help from the school janitor there s to the janitor than meets the eye But it s than just a lesson in standing up for yourself Along th [...]
I got this book through the giveaway It couldn t have come at a better time Both of my kids are having bully issues and this book taught them to stand up for themselves and also to learn a little bit about why the bully is a bully It wasn t boring, because it had them cracking up while reading it My son was able to identify with the main character who ended up being kind of a hero, yay He also especially loved the illustrations on each page This is definitely something I would have picked out an [...]
This was a very cute, quick read, that deals with the topic of bullying Three outcasts in a public junior high are being bullied, so the principal puts them together in the form of a safety team The book has nice artwork, but is clearly a Diary of a Wimpy Kid knockoff.
Well, this is going to be my recommendation to the young lady obsessed with the Terrible Two series by Barnett It is funny but deals with serious topics divorce, abandonment, grief, bullying However, it doesn t beat you over the head with them It also has great illustrations.
It was a good book but it could be a little challenging
Nick is tired of being shoved into his locker by Roy, who relentlessly bullies everyone at Emily Dickinson Middle School, but know that as the shortest 7th grader EVER, he is unlikely to break free of Roy s tyranny When the school psychologist decides that Nick would be safer if he had a peer group, Nick doesn t protest too much when he gets put on the Safety Patrol with the lone member of said patrol, Warren, as well as Molly, a tall girl whose shoelaces are frequently tied together With the he [...]
Three school misfits join forces and work to overcome bullying at their school Told in a quirky and fun way, complete with illustrations, Michael Fry has done a fantastic job of putting the lipstick on the bullying pig, and showing that its still what it is, an unfortunate and sometimes unavoidable curse of school life.Told from Nick s point of view, we are privy to his inner thoughts as he goes through each day, each event at an age when things really get tough for kids, middle school You will [...]
This was genuinely funny with a solid message I would think that kids would just eat this up James Patterson has written books for Middle School trying for humor but Michael Fry has him beat by a mile Three loners at school are being bullied and suffering from peer allergies The counselor decides they would benefit by being in a group and assigns all of them to Safety Patrol The janitor, Mr Dupree, claims to be ex secret service and has agreed to tutor them in the finer skills of surveillance an [...]
This book deals sensitively and humorously with the complex problem of bullying Like Roald Dahl, Michael Fry has written beautifully about the lovable oddball who is able to rise above a dastardly situation Here we have three protagonists, either too short or too tall or just too nerdy to fit in anywhere But together they make a Mean Machine for combatting the school Bully Weaving throughout the story is the school janitor, a delightful merging of genius and wackiness, who is able to help them i [...]
I enjoyed this book Yes, there are some common themes here, but as a middle school teacher, what impressed me is that Fry aptly illustrates that the line sometimes is a little blurry than just bully vs bully ee Just like in real life, not every good guy is always good and vice versa, and not every adult is a saint or an enemy The characters are real and human and nuanced in a way that previous incarnations have not been What also distinguishes this book from others is how well the adults are fo [...]
Nick s,Molly s,and Karl s goal is to prove the whole middle school that they re not lame,odd or nothing.Molly is 12 years old and the tallest girl in the school.Nick is small and weak and gets bullied everyday An Karl is hopeless because he thinks too much The three met when Nick formed a club called the odd squad the book keeps the reader entertain by the odd squad s by the groups what they do, say,and plan and I would recommend this book to readers that like this type of humor and types of cha [...]
A laugh out loud story of life in middle school and how awful it can seem at times Nicks is picked on because he s short, Molly is picked on because she s tall, and Karl is clueless At the suggestion of their guidance teacher okay, she makes it mandatory , the three of them form a Safety Patrol to keep kids safe from bullies It s an absurdly nuanced story of nerds winning, and bullies being the ones who need your pity Fantastic illustrations throughout add to the story
My eleven year old son gave this book its rating According to him it s about a group of nerdy middle schoolers who take on the school bully Classic He liked all the pictures and laughed a lot while reading it and says he ll probably read it again Not sure he could give higher praise THE ODD SQUAD falls in that DIARY OF A WIMPY KID and THE DORK DIARIES genre text and lots of hand sketched pictures.
I thought that this was the best of the 2 books in the series.I read the 2nd one in the series before the 1st one,and I felt like I was missing out.i got this book from the public library near where I live9thanks to my mom and I wizzed through it.My mom was surprised that at the end of the day she asked me how are you liking that book and I said Oh it was great.I m done by the way so you can take it back to the libraryAnd that is that
i liked this book it kept me awake when we had a seemingly long ride home from camping i love how the story has a twist that turns the whole story around, the hilarious drawings that that he puts on each page, its a pretty good book.
I read this one out loud to my 10 year old boys they thought it was hilarious The illustrations were priceless.
I think the odd squad bully bait was a very interesting book to read Because it shows that this boy named Nick has been getting bullied for along time by this big bully Roy and what he doesn t see is that Roy has feelings too He thinks he s this mutant troll This book shows that just cause your tough on the inside doesn t mean that he doesn t have something that he loves Nick is always trying to find a way to make Roy stop bullying him After being shoved in a locker a lot of times the guidance c [...]
Note to self This book was included in middle school required list for 2017 2018 Children and I went over this book and decided we are not interested.
This was probably one of my favorite books ever I am not usually a fan of these types of books, but I was trying something new and this seemed like a good book I was mistaken when I said good It was a fantastic book and I would recommend it for younger people who do face these problems of being bullied anywhere, whether it s at school or outside of school It is about a boy named Nick, who is the SHORTEST 7th grade to ever be known or at least that s what he thinks who gets shoved into his locker [...]
I think that this book is very lively and by that I mean that there is always something happening or going on in this book like it could be funny or suspenseful with the stories that the janitor tells in the book This books genre would probably be fantasy only because of the supposedly spirit that haunts the school but helps out the Odd Squad from Roy Something that really pulled me in for this book is the fact that this kid kept getting bullied at school but then when he got home he would bully [...]
This book was in my category as a middle schooler It was funny and had some immature things in it.
