Our New Favorite Children's Book: Win a Copy of Oddfellow's Orphanage by Emily Martin
School may be out for the summer, but you can still encourage your little ones to keep up their reading with Oddfellow’s Orphanage, the whimsical story of a most unusual school where children take lessons in Fairy Tale Studies, go on monster-sighting field trips, and befriend a family of dancing bears.
Indie craft icon Emily Martin, author of The Black Apple’s Paper Doll Primer, found the inspiration to write her first novel after a series of portraits she painted, which evolved into a series of stories about the characters–enough to fill an entire book!
The story follows the school year through the eyes of Delia, the newest orphan, and her fellow students, teachers, and caretakers as they discover what they mean to each other while learning how big and astonishing the world really is.
We at CrafterNews fell in love with the gorgeous artwork and curious characters drawn in Emily’s signature style–and we’d love to share it with you!
Just leave a comment below and tell us what your favorite kid’s book is. You’ll automatically be entered to win a copy of Oddfellow’s Orphanage plus Emily’s first book, The Black Apple’s Paper Doll Primer, for many hours of summertime reading and crafting fun.
