About the Author

Sarah Cannon, author of Oddity, has lived all over the U.S., but right now she calls Indiana home. She has a husband, three kids and a misguided dog. Sarah holds a B.S. in Education. She's a nerdy knitting gardener who drinks a lot of coffee, and eats a lot of raspberries. She is probably human.

Reviews

Praise for Oddity

"I've never read anything like this wonderful book. An infinite number of monkeys with an infinite number of typewriters have a story they want to share with you, and they're going by the name Sarah Cannon so as to be inconspicuous. Do yourself a favor and take Oddity from their little monkey fingers." --Adam Rex, author of The True Meaning of Smekday

"This book grabbed me from page one. Wild, whacky, and yet utterly believable. You will love Ada and ODDITY!" --Sage Blackwood, author of Jinx

"Sarah Cannon is puppet master of this delightfully dark and hilariously creepy debut. Herein, you'll find excitement, adventure, and heart--and I don't just mean the kind you'd be likely to discover, still beating (perhaps even beatboxing), in a jar at the local Oddity grocery." --Heidi Schulz, New York Times Bestselling author of Hook's Revenge

"Readers will be hooked from the first page. . . . Like Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book, Cannon's work takes a sardonic tone, blending humor, darkness, suspense, and the enduring metaphorical battle of good vs. evil. . . . Featuring a diverse cast of characters, this fantasy is chock-full of adventure and agency, making it a must-buy and a must-read for most -middle graders." --School Library Journal

"Utterly endearing. A charming, enjoyable thrill ride with memorable characters, crazy creatures, and a theme about the importance of family." --Booklist

"This blend of the absurd and the supernatural is perfect for the imaginative young reader who appreciates eerie occurrences and a little wicked puppetry but isn't quite ready for the button-eyed beldam in Coraline."
--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
