Publisher's Summary

The number-one New York Times best seller written by Criminal Minds actor/director, 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.

It’s amazing!

Although I’m Matthew’s fan from Taiwan, who mainly speaks mandarin, I can totally understand the story and even be touched by it. I love it when Matthew changes his voice to play different characters. I believe that everyone will enjoy this great book——Rumple Buttercup.

Beautiful story

I have the hard copy, but it feels so personal hearing it from the authors voice. He did such a beautiful job. My son and i listened to the story and aside from him wanting cotton candy pancakes, he overall understood the message coming from the story. Please be kind to one another, one act of kindness can go a very long way.

warm fuzzies

This was a heartwarming, if short, story. It is a great story for children about acceptance, of both yourself and others. Matthew does a wonderful job narrating and switching up voices for all the characters. I thoroughly enjoyed it

I love Rumple Buttercup

I enjoyed everything about this story. I’ve been a fan of Matthew for a very long time. I enjoy his acting artistry his sense of humor and now his storytelling. Hearing it read in his own voice is a special treat. I can’t wait for my hard copies to arrive. ♥️

The goodness we need.

I honestly bought this because I LOVEE Matthew Gray Gubler and I wanted to check this book out because I heard it was incredibly sweet. After listening to it I will make sure all my younger bothers, sisters, future nieces, and nephews.... and any others get a copy of this book.

It’s just complete goodness and exactly what people need. In our hard lives, with our harsh self judgement this book is what we all need
