Odder than ever

Book Cover
Average Rating
Harcourt Brace,
Pub. Date:
1st ed.
Beloved for his hilarious and unexpectedly moving novels, Bruce Coville is also a master of the short story. In this follow-up to Oddly Enough, he again presents a collection of unusual breadth and emotional depth. A ghost who died under uproarious circumstances haunts a kitchen baking "Biscuits of Glory," while in the grand tale "The Golden Sail," there are unexpected consequences when a young teen goes in search of his seafaring father. The collection includes a heartbreaking new story from Mr. Elives' Magic Shop, "The Metamorphosis of Justin Jones," and the bittersweet title story from the critically acclaimed anthology Am I Blue? A perfect introduction to Bruce Coville's magic for the uninitiated, Odder Than Ever also has a treat for his die-hard fans: three never-before-published stories.
