The O.D.D. Squad: Rise of Invisidog

Book Synopsis

Perfect for fans of Bunny Vs Monkey and Dog Man!

Do you want to laugh your pants off? Of course you do. In which case – come on into the world of the O.D.D. Squad – a team of (sort of) heroic animal crime-fighters you’ll never forget. Though maybe not for the right reasons . . .

Justice City. Rain soaks its streets. Crime soaks it more. The fate of the entire city has been left in the hands (well, paws) of one brave superhero.

That’s right – dun dun dunnnnnn – INVISIDOG!

Invisidog hunts for danger wherever he finds it. There is no job too big, and no criminal too tough for the mighty Invisidog. He is the shadows!! And actually, that’s kind of the problem. Because Invisidog’s amazing superpowers . . . are kind of rubbish.

Turns out being invisible isn’t all that helpful when you’re trying to rid a city of terrible criminals. They tend to have a habit of ignoring you for one thing. So Invisidog’s going to have to think BIG. Can he convince the most amazing superheroes of all time – adorable-but-mighty Quack Attack, and the world’s greatest thinker, Detective Octopus – to join forces?

(What does O.D.D. Squad stand for? Well you’ll have to read and find out, won’t you?)

Our Review Panel says...

When you start reading this book you think it’s going to be a typical super hero book – but it’s far from it! There are lots of things that scream a typical superhero comic but lots of things that make this younger graphic novel a unique and fun read for Lower KS2.

Invisidog has superpowers that mean he is invisible and he is desperate to use them to get rid of Captain Bad. The problem is he can’t help, because no one can see him. The other heroes, Quack Attack and Detective Octopus, continue to fight crime until they have a disagreement and Quack Attack decides to go it alone. All the time Captain Bad continues to devise a plan to destroy Planet Earth. Whilst trying to stop Captain Bad, Invisidog learns that when you believe in yourself you can have mighty powers and the importance of working in a team. Will they save Planet Earth?

This is a brilliant book for children who enjoy graphic novels or for those ready to be introduced to the format. The chapters are short, which makes it easier for children who are just reading chapter books to enjoy the story. Some entertaining chapters reflect the news reports and follow a more traditional comic strip format. The book is humorous and the author often talks directly to the reader, which offers extra insights to what is happening and excitement about what will happen next.

This is a brilliant start to a series of books about the ODD squad.
