Weirdo – Zadie Smith, Nick Laird & Magenta Fox
This book is the children’s debut by literary superstars Zadie Smith and Nick Laird and is illustrated by a new illustrator, Magenta Fox. Via the medium of the main protagonist, Maud, a judo suit wearing guinea pig, the book explores and celebrates the quiet power in being different.
Maud is a birthday gift for a child called Kit, but Maud is different from all of the other pets that inhabit Kit’s house already and she feels out of place, she doesn’t know how this new home operates and what the rules are and trying to fit in with this new environment doesn’t make her happy. Being herself is what makes her her and what makers her happy.
