Cecil Castellucci and Sara Varon have teamed up for a sweet story of friendship and self-acceptance. I loved that Theodora embraced being an introvert, but was still able to make a new friend. At 96 pages, this is a very quick read, but still worth keeping in my classroom library. There are times when kids finish a book before the end of reading time or are unprepared for 15 minutes of D.E.A.R. It's a good to have a sweet story they can dip into for that time. Odd Duck is a great accompaniment to Varon's Robot Dreams and Bake Sale.
