Someone on this busy street.
Is dancing to a different beat.

Blaze a trail and dare to be different.

It's a dog's life in the big city...

But one dog doesn't quite fit in. It's lonely being the odd dog out, when all she wants to do is find her place in the world.

She's willing to go to the other side of the world to look for it... but it might take a different kind of journey for her to discover that maybe where she's meant to be is right back where she started...

A book about the courage it takes to be different, Odd Dog Out is a gloriously illustrated story about leaving home and finding yourself.

Come and join one very busy dog on her journey to find her place in the world, in this third sublimely illustrated book from the bestselling, award-winning Rob Biddulph.

We at Waterstones have had our eye on Rob Biddulph and his beautiful books since we awarded him the Watestones Children’s Book Prize in 2015 for his stunning debut picture book, Blown Away. Since then he’s continued to delight with his tale of a champion competitive bear, GRRRRR! as well as providing pitch perfect illustrations for other books we’ve loved, including David Solomon’s hilarious My Brother is a Superhero and Pier’s Torday’s There May Be a Castle.

Praise for Rob Biddulph:

We’ve travelled far, then found our place
With Penguin Blue’s kite-tangled chase,
Then Grrrrr! showed us that making friends
Beats any trophy for its ends.
