About the Book

They're invaders from another world. Your imagination.

Kip is a quiet kid in a loud city. She's easy to miss and that's the way she likes it.

Then, one day, Kip's quiet life is suddenly interrupted. Ten of her favourite characters have stepped out of their worlds and into hers.

But what happens when a dragon-hunting rabbit leaves his comic strip? When an old man leaves his picture book? When a ninja leaves her TV show, a race-car driver leaves their video game, and a dinosaur turns up from Kip's nightmares?

From million-copy bestseller Matt Stanton comes the start of a hilarious and heart-filled graphic novel series about identity, imagination and discovering who you are.

Meet the Odds ... because fitting in is overrated.

'Stanton writes with a fine balance of humor and pathos ... Nuanced explorations of grief and self-discovery temper all the weirdness in this odd — and oddly satisfying — story.' -- Kirkus Reviews

'Perfect for independent readers aged seven and up ... filled with Stanton's trademark humour and irreverence, embedded with themes of friendship, family and identity.' -- Books + Publishing

'Matt Stanton is rapidly becoming one of the decade's most sought-after authors by young, newly independent readers who like his humour that is always tempered with a good, solid storyline ... this is a book that has depth as well as diversity and carries a message that will reach out to even the most reluctant reader.' -- The Bottom Shelf
