Saturday, May 21st, 10:30am -- Stephanie Campisi, Author of The Ugly Dumpling

Orca is thrilled to welcome children's author Stephanie Campisi to the store on this May morning. Stephanie is the author of the delightful new picture book, The Ugly Dumpling.

It’s not easy being the ugliest dumpling in a dim sum restaurant. Uneaten and ignored, the ugly dumpling is down in the dumps. But when an encouraging cockroach sees the dumpling’s inner beauty, this unlikely duo embarks on an eye-opening adventure, leading the ugly dumpling to discover its true identity and realize that being different is beautiful after all.

A modern fairytale retelling with a timeless moral: There’s a little ugly dumpling in all of us.

"Specifically told without gendered pronouns, this is simply a story about love. Kober's illustrations are characterized by delicious changes in perspective, and Campisi's sly, humorous asides ensure that the message of identity is not heavy-handed: 'The ugly dumpling was overjoyed. / It puffed with meaning. / It puffed with importance / and yeast.'" -- Kirkus Reviews

"A whimsical story about being different, and the power of love." -- Wendy Orr, Author of Nim's Island and The Princess and Her Panther
