“I loved Rumple Buttercup! Anyone familiar with Matthew Gray Gubler’s work will see his trademark quirkiness all over this book, which is simultaneously sweet and weird. This is the kind of book that will make children feel like it is okay to be themselves, in whatever shape or form. For adult readers, it will spark in them that hope and joy of feeling like a kid again.”
— Clarissa Hadge, Trident Booksellers & Cafe, Boston, MA


The #1 New York Times bestseller written and illustrated by Matthew Gray Gubler. This charming and inspiring story is the perfect gift for kids (and grown-up kids) alike!

Rumple Buttercup has five crooked teeth, three strands of hair, green skin, and his left foot is slightly bigger than his right.

He is weird.

Join him and Candy Corn Carl (his imaginary friend made of trash) as they learn the joy of individuality as well as the magic of belonging.
