3.0 out of 5 stars SPECIAL NEEDS KID???
By Pm on May 9, 2019
My son is a 12 year old who happens to be part of the special needs class. He wanted this book so badly and begged me to get it. We read it together as he still needs lots of help reading. I was shocked and heartbroken when we read the page that had the cartoon saying maybe the special needs kids would talk to him. My son did pick up on me skipping over it because of course I was not going to read that to him. He is a special needs kid in junior high. I think the author should think about all his fans, and how maybe some of them are special needs. They are not less then any other kid. And they happen to be very cool.

4.0 out of 5 stars Irreverant, off-beat, and often funny
By Reasonable Reviewer on February 4, 2019
Jame Rallison has been wildly successful running a YouTube channel with the same name as this book that explores his offbeat, eclectic views on the world.

If you like the YouTube channel then you are going to absolutely love this book.

This is a written book (chapter book really) written in a Middle Grade style that has a good number of colored illustrations. So this is not a graphic novel or comic book, which is what you might be expecting given that James is a cartoonist/animator.

If you are new to James' sketches and humor, you have to be in the right frame of mind to enjoy them. I kind of view James as a millennial Gary Larson.

This book talks about his growing up, and James does not spare us views into Skittles' vomit being multicolored to "not looking" when naked classmates are prancing by in gym class to pet moths being eaten by birds in front of a class of five year olds.

James says things like "back then I believed parents knew best" and "back then I thought teachers knew best." So, you are getting a 20-30 something view of the world.

I did not find any grossly objectionable material for anyone 10+. Some of the jokes about dying pets, vomit, ... might be a little on the mature side for the youngest of readers. (On the other hand, they probably won't want to read a chapter book either.)

All in all, this was always fun, often funny, and ever insightful view of James' world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Approved by mom of 4
By NurseonaFarm on July 18, 2019
Odds1out is one of the few youtubers that doesn't drive me nuts. I love that his videos are clean and kid friendly and honestly I think he is funny and often find myself listening in while my kiddos are watching. My 9, 10, and 11 year old all really wanted this book so we got it and they all took turns reading it immediately. They enjoyed reading it and said a lot of the stories were new and not on his youtube channel (which was something I was concerned about). In less than a week they all 3 read it and said it was super funny and they highly recommend it! Also, James if you are reading this please write more books 😁
