Summary

Diary of a Wimpy Kid meets Percy Jackson in Odd Gods, the first book in a hilarious illustrated series about the most unlikely, unusual Gods ever to grace the halls of Mount Olympus Middle School.

A Summer 2019 Kids' Indie Next Pick!

Oddonis may be the son of Zeus, but he's a little bit...odd for a God. He's so odd, in fact, he's not sure if he has any powers at all. And if that isn't enough, his twin brother Adonis is the most popular, most athletic, and most otherworldly handsome God of them all.

Oddonis's future at Mount Olympus Middle isn't looking bright, especially when he makes the last-minute decision to run against Adonis to be class president.

With the help of his friends Mathena (Goddess of math and poultry), Germes (God of all things sniffling and snotty), Puneous (the smallest God of them all), and Gaseous (enough said?), Oddonis is determined to win the race, prove that his friends are as good as any Greek God, and maybe, just maybe, find out what his true powers really are.

Read the hilarious new adventures of Oddonis and his friends from debut children's authors David Slavin and Daniel Weitzman, filled with dozens of black-and-white illustrations by award-winning artist Adam Lane.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Welcome to Mount Olympus Middle School, where the young gods rule and everyone else . . . gets dumpster-worthy leftovers for lunch and heaping helpings of humiliation in the hallways. That's what Oddonis, slightly younger twin brother of hunky Adonis, discovers in this not-quite-subtle Wimpy Kid-style riff. Reserving select incidents (and most of the punch lines) for Lane's frequent cartoon drawings, Slavin and Weitzman pit their underachieving narrator against his swaggering sib in a campaign for class president. Along with freely mixing mythologies (the twins are the offspring of Zeus and Freya, which makes for some gross Scandinavian-style fish breakfasts), the authors have great fun with names (Gaseous, son, naturally, of Uranus; Trianus, a dog with one head but three butts). Readers will end up admiring Oddonis for standing up for underdogs everywhere but may spare some sympathy for Adonis, too, who turns out to be a comically clumsy oaf pressured since birth into a win at any cost mentality by his all-powerful dad. Stay tuned for further mishaps and mythic misadventures.--John Peters Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this first in a planned series, Slavin (Young Dick Cheney) and newcomer Weitzman introduce Oddonis, twin of popular, handsome Adonis and imperfect son of deities Zeus and Freya. The opposite of most deities, Oddonis isn't strong, athletic, or artistic, and he has no idea what his talent is. Oddonis's similarly awkward cadre of friends includes pal Mathena, goddess of math and poultry, and best friend Gaseous (son of Uranus and Refried Bean Queen Chalupa), whose farts smell of "feta cheese, a wet ferret, and feet." Running against his brother for class president, Oddonis seeks to become the voice for the "odds" of Mount Olympus Middle School, find his unique godly power, and impress his father. Oddonis's transition from outsider to a leader who sees his individuality as a strength shines through the nonstop gross-out humor and silliness. Frequent nods to well-known mythological figures will draw in readers interested in the topic, and black-and-white illustrations by Lane (Stop Thief!), which amplify the comedy, will appeal to readers of graphic hybrids.
