That night, beginning at 7:00 p.m., Gubler will appear for a special “meet & greet” at WORD bookstore in Brooklyn.
In Gubler’s book, Rumple Buttercup has five crooked teeth, three strands of hair, green skin, and his left foot is slightly bigger than his right. Readers will 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.
