Dill & Bizzy are the ultimate odd couple!
We love this book! As someone who feels like an offbeat person, it’s adorable to find a children’s story of a funny friendship that is anything but ordinary. It’s important to be friends with someone who accepts you as you are and lets you be yourself – even if you are a ‘strange bird’ or an ‘odd duck.’ Luckily, this book follows the friendship of both Dill & Bizzy, the sweetest of couples!
Dill is a duck. A perfectly ordinary duck. At least that’s what he thinks. Then he meets Bizzy, a strange bird. Bizzy seems to think that Dill is actually an odd duck! Together, they find that they’re even more extra-ordinary than they could have imagined. This debut novel is perfect for anyone who has ever felt a little odd or a tad strange, because this deliciously offbeat picture book celebrates the joy of finding a friend who lets you march (or waddle!) to the beat of your own drum.
About the Author: Nora Ericson’s first book, The Bravest Chipmunk in the World, was written at age six and hailed (by her mother) as a work of literary genius. Quite a few years later, Nora studied writing for children at Vermont College of Fine Arts and further developed her interest in stories about exceptional creatures of all sorts. She herself is perfectly ordinary, but she enjoys the company of people who are a bit odd, like her big sister, Lisa. Nora can be found in person in Portland, Oregon.
About the Illustrator: Lisa Ericson has been an artist since childhood and now makes her living as an illustrator and graphic designer. She learned to draw feathered friends and other fantastic fowl at Yale University. She herself is perfectly ordinary, but she doesn’t mind hanging out with people who are a bit strange, like her little sister, Nora. Lisa also lives in Portland, Oregon.
