Cartoon character colouring:  Enjoy colouring fun from The Odds by Matt Stanton

They’re invaders from another world. Your imagination.

Kip is a quiet kid in a loud city. She’s easy to miss and that’s the way she likes it.

Then, one day, Kip’s quiet life is suddenly interrupted. Ten of her favourite characters have stepped out of their worlds and into hers.

But what happens when a dragon-hunting rabbit leaves his comic strip? When an old man leaves his picture book? When a ninja leaves her TV show, a race-car driver leaves their video game, and a dinosaur turns up from Kip’s nightmares?

From million-copy bestseller, Matt Stanton comes the start of a hilarious and heart-filled graphic novel series about identity, imagination and discovering who you are.

Meet the Odds … because fitting in is overrated.
