Rumple Buttercup has five crooked teeth, three strands of hair, green skin, and his left foot is slightly bigger than his right. He is lonely, but what Rumple doesn’t realize is that he’s also sensitive, funny, creative, and thoughtful. Join him and Candy Corn Carl—his imaginary friend made of trash—as they learn the joy of individuality and the magic of belonging.

Illustrated in Matthew’s trademark art style, this is the perfect gift for those with a penchant for the odd. Written in hilariously witty language and bursting with heart and sensitivity, readers of all ages will fall in love with Rumple and understand the good we can do for one another.


Matthew Gray Gubler is a storyteller from Las Vegas, Nevada, who directs, paints, writes, acts, and knows magic. He also loves to voice cartoon characters, look for ghosts, and wear soft pajamas.
