9780152024659: Odder Than Ever

Beloved for his hilarious and unexpectedly moving novels, Bruce Coville is also a master of the short story. In this follow-up to Oddly Enough, he again presents a collection of unusual breadth and emotional depth. A ghost who died under uproarious circumstances haunts a kitchen baking “Biscuits of Glory,” while in the grand tale “The Golden Sail,” there are unexpected consequences when a young teen goes in search of his seafaring father. The collection includes a heartbreaking new story from Mr. Elives’ Magic Shop, “The Metamorphosis of Justin Jones,” and the bittersweet title story from the critically acclaimed anthology Am I Blue? A perfect introduction to Bruce Coville’s magic for the uninitiated, Odder Than Ever also has a treat for his die-hard fans: three never-before-published stories.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-9This anthology pulls together six previously published and three new stories by this well-known fantasy and science-fiction writer. Most are richly satisfying, and there are a few surprises. The Golden Sail has none of Covilles trademark humor but is instead a wistful, timeless fantasy about a boys journey on a magic boat to find his father. In The Metamorphosis of Justin Jones, a mistreated and unwanted boy makes a difficult choice between eternal untroubled youth and a future filled with untold pain and promise. The rest of the tales range from shivery horror (Theres Nothing under the Bed) to tongue-in-cheek humor (The Giants Tooth) to a fractured fairy tale (The Stinky Princess). Am I Blue? envisions a hilarious solution to homophobia, a boy meets his inner demon in The Japanese Mirror, and interplanetary relations are explored from a kids-eye view in I, Earthling. The only less-than-successful story is Biscuits of Glory, which is just a little too fluffy. All in all, an immensely enjoyable and thought-provoking collection.Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Library
