Meet Ed. He’s an odd egg.
Unlike his siblings, he looks and behaves a little differently.

He makes his bed.
He reads instead.

He waters flowers
and boosts them with powers.

But when his siblings make fun of him,
they quickly learn that being odd is kind of cool after all.

Odd Ed is a story of acceptance and compassion. Solomon’s treatment of the issue teaches children to see past physical differences to uncover unique qualities and strengths in others.

Review by Stacey

Odd Ed is a superb young children’s picture book about an egg named Ed that is different from his siblings. However, whilst they might find him strange and weird, Ed doesn’t mind looking and being different.

One day the other eggs need Ed’s help to escape a dangerous situation. Can Ed be brave enough to help them?

In this short rhyming story children will find a whole host of values and messages including realising that it is okay to be different and that everyone is unique, to learning that sometimes you have to be brave.

The illustrations are quite dull in colour but they work perfectly for the plot and embrace the story wholly. I love Ed’s colouring which makes him look like a large pebble.

This is a book that should be in schools to teach very young children that it is okay to be different. It really is a lovely read and I highly recommend it.
