Diary of a Wimpy Kid meets Percy Jackson in Odd Gods, the first book in a hilarious 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. Listen to the hilarious new adventures of Oddonis and his friends from debut children’s authors David Slavin and Daniel Weitzman.

Summary

Diary of a Wimpy Kid meets Percy Jackson in Odd Gods, the first book in a hilarious 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.

Listen to the hilarious new adventures of Oddonis and his friends from debut children’s authors David Slavin and Daniel Weitzman. 

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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.” Publishers Weekly
“Oddonis and his friends are well developed, engaging, relatable characters who will draw readers into the story with ease.” School Library Journal
“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.” Booklist
“Newly minted fans will hope that future myth-adventures will be just as silly.” Kirkus Reviews
