About this product
- DescriptionEight-year-old Murgatroyd Floyd doesn't fit in-t as a blue-eyed blonde living in Singapore, t in school, and certainly t with his aloof expatriate parents, who seem determined to make his life even harder. Unbekwnst to him, there's a reason why he's always the odd boy out: he is an Oddfit, a rare type of human with access to the More Kwn World, a land invisible to most people. Yet unfortunate circumstances keep Murgatroyd stranded in the Kwn World, bumbling through life with the feeling that an extraordinary something is waiting for him just beyond reach. Seventeen years later, that something finally arrives when a secret organization dedicated to exploring the More Kwn World invites Murgatroyd on a mission. But as the consummate loser begins to grow into the Oddfit he was meant to be, the Kwn World becomes bent on exterminating him. For once in his underachieving life, will Murgatroyd Floyd exceed expectations and outsmart those trying to thwart his stupendous destiny?
