A 2013 Willow Award Nominee, Oddrey by Dave Whamond  is an appealing read.

Oddrey is an “odd” little girl who is very creative  and ends up using her uniqueness to save her class from disaster. We read it with the grade two class when talking about belonging and acceptance. The students loved the colourful artwork but it was the storyline that also led to powerful discussion on what belonging and generosity actually mean. Similar idea to two of my other favourites Elmer and Leon the Chameleon.
