Rumple Buttercup: A Story of Bananas, Belonging, and Being Yourself
by Matthew Gray Gubler

Come close and I’ll tell you a story

Chapter 1
Once upon a time,
Long ago and far away in a tiny town beneath a purple peaked pine tree…
There lived a monster named Rumple Buttercup

He had…
5 crooked teeth, 3 strands of hair, green skin, and his left foot was slightly bigger than his right

He was weird

And so Rumple worried that if anyone ever saw him they would, be scared, run away, or throw rocks at his head
So he spent his entire life hiding underground in a rain drain right by a garbage can in the middle of town where no one would ever see him

  1. I’d like to read more from this one; cute pick Vicki.

  2. This is by the actor from Criminal Minds. I didn’t know he wrote books too. This looks good.

    • Yes it is Yvonne. I’ve loved watching him in CM so when I saw he’s written a book I had to get a copy. You can check out his drawings etc. HERE

  3. Sounds charming…and I like the illustrations.

  4. I hope Rumple comes out of hiding!

  5. Awww throwing rocks at is head!!! I so feel for him!

    Sounds like a great read with an even greater meaning!

  6. Looks like a fun book.

  7. Oh, poor Rumple!

    Looks and sounds like a wonderful children’s book!
