Are You an Odd-Fish?

If you loved Roald Dahl (Matilda, James and the Giant Peach) as a kid, you'll probably love James Kennedy's The Order of Odd-Fish. Jo has grown up in the desert with her eccentric and forgetful Aunt Lily. Jo showed up in Aunt Lily's laundry room with a note declaring her "dangerous." On Christmas Day a Russian colonel and a large cockroach (he walks on his hind legs) show up and Jo's ordinary life becomes bizarre. Soon they are all on the shores of Eldritch City, where fantastic creatures roam the streets, knights battle in insults and apologies, and a dark, gloomy and mysterious cloud hangs over Jo's existence. For fans of alternate worlds, silly stories and great mysteries.
