Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

A Forbes Best Children's Book of the Year (so far)
Kids will love the weird, mythical and strangely cute character of Rumple Buttercup. It’s entertaining for all ages. Forbes
“Actor Matthew Gray Gubler brings his children’s story to the listener’s ear with exuberance…Emphasizing alliteration, using myriad voices ranging from falsetto to squeaky, and changing pace on a dime are all part of Gubler’s craft. As narrator, he is cheerfully distinctive.” AudioFile
“The overall message is obvious but well-meaning and could equally appeal to elementary school reluctant readers or adolescent misfits. Not quite any one kind of book, this story will appeal to a variety of readers with a taste for the odd.” Kirkus Reviews
“Sure, the message about being yourself is unsubtle, but the narration itself avoids preachiness, and there’s plenty of goofy, endearing humor…Kids who enjoy some satisfying weirdness with an I-love-me sensibility will find a pal in Rumple.” Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
