This is a book about a clever, but clumsy, inventor, Dafty Dan, who secretly loves the girl selling flowers in his village. While searching the nearby forest for a rose to give to her (since roses will not grow in her garden), he is trapped by a very grumpy, green creature with warts on his nose, called "Grumpface." Grumpface will not let Dan go free until he performs three difficult tasks. As Dan sets out to solve the tasks by inventing, he somehow never manages to invent what he intended, and so the story unfolds.
B.R. Fegan's artful, rhyming prose is reminiscent of children's fairytales from earlier times. Together with Daniela Frongia's glorious whimsical illustrations, this book will capture the attention and imagination of both parents and children.
(I received a review copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.)
