Product Description:

Gr. 1-3. Rink Bowagon is not like other boys. Not only does he live on Lonesome Mountain, a “hotbed of strange and exotic talents,” but he is shy, quiet, and sprouts flowers from his body during each full moon. Shunned at school, Rink keeps to himself—until a kind, honest girl named Angelina Quiz with a short right leg joins his class. Rink instantly likes her and decides to ask her to the school dance, painstakingly crafting her a pair of snakeskin party shoes with one extra-thick right sole to balance her out. When Rink shows up at Angelina’s door with green shoes and pink roses in hand (they had previously sprouted from his head), her heart flips, and the rest is history. This quirky, beautifully told story of individuality, love, and kindness (and the benefits of corrective shoes!) is illustrated with soft, luminous acrylics on visibly textured board. Artful compositions, intriguingly varied perspectives, and a gorgeous palette make these whimsical, expressive paintings suitable for framing. An odd, lovely offering. Karin Snelson
