Odd Bird Out

Submitted by Ms. Tess!
If you have a little one who marches to their own drummer, they might really enjoy Odd Bird Out by Helga Bansch, a fabulous story about celebrating your unique-ness, and loving yourself for who you are! It's about Robert the raven, who does not adhere to "normal" raven behavior. He loves to wear colors instead of all black! He loves to tell jokes! And most of all, he loves to sing! One day though the other ravens have had enough, and tell Robert they don't want him around any more. Robert is sad, but he finds a tree of birds who accept his outgoing personality, and encourage him to sing loud and long! He creates a new life for himself as the sensational Bobby Raver! The other ravens come to realize that their lives are pretty boring without Bobby around, and come to embrace his music and fashion sense! Robert/Bobby's triumphant story of self confidence is an inspiration to everyone to be yourself, no matter how "odd!" See this book listed in our catalog


  1. Hi, can i ask you something? I’m looking for children books with “scary” animal illustrations like wolf (or fox) eating pigs (or seven kids or Red Riding hood or birds in Chicken Little) or being pictured with a fat stomach. Any sort of help is appreciated. Thanks in advance. Great blog, by the way!

  2. Hello Reese. I polled the ladies about your interesting request. We're all intrigued as to why you're seeking such illustrations, as most people try to avoid them! Ms. Allana thought you might like the book "Wolves" by Emily Gravett. Hope that helps. Thanks for reading our blog :)
