Book Review: Dr. Marvellus Djinn's Odd Scholars (Part 2)

This novel was a great read and I would recommend it as essential middle school literature. The cultural relevance that is richly placed in its pages is too valuable not to spread to the youth. B. Sharise Moore writes a dramatic and intriguing experience. The material is a glimpse into the pain and endurance of the African-in-America life that we come from and continue to live.

Dr. Marvellus Djinn's Odd Scholars is a fun novel that offers a good amount of conversation. It succeeds in being a text for education that would advance both the literary and comprehension skills of students. History and mythology are woven into the narrative with expert talent.

Another point that is important to mention is this text's dedication to ongoing liberation and activism. Topics dealing with racism, hate crimes, sexism, and class are all given space for collaborative conversation. These issues are worth talking about to the youth. It is a subject that should be delivered to them in an educationally safe atmosphere. Due to this book's encouragement for conversation, I would also recommend this novel to ALL schools from multiple backgrounds.

Dr. Marvellus Djinn's Odd Scholars is not just a novel for entertainment but for learning as well. It is a teacher's tool to further the understanding of our world in the United States. Children, students, and families will all benefit from reading this refreshing novel.
