Odd er et egg

Odd Is an Egg

Odd ist ein Ei

## ## ## ##

When the other children are playing, Odd prefers to keep to himself. He does not like it all when there is a lot of commotion and running about, with balls flying past his head – for Odd is as fragile as a raw egg. That is, until the boisterous and fearless Gunn, who can fly like a bee, pushes him to overcome his deeply-rooted anxiety. With her, Odd has so much fun that he completely forgets to mind his head. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
