The sweet, ethereal and terrifying creatures of Nicoletta Ceccoli are back to enchant us, this time by telling us a love story. The princesses in this book do not wait to be saved by a charming prince. Her girls with icy and intense faces and porcelain skin are still immersed in surrealist settings, surrounded by sweets and toys, most of which look old style and vaguely disquieting. Closed in their castles and labyrinths, they affirm their strength and independence, but also their solitude. Publisher: Venusdea Label, Soleil, France, 2013 Publisher: Logos Edizioni, Italia, 2014.

How can you tell if a river’s under a spell? River trolls, rock trolls, blue-wing fairies—the usual suspects—the stretch of the Mississippi where Claire lives has rumors of them all, not that she’s ever spotted any. But then Claire’s cousin Duke takes a swim and sprouts a horn—a long, pointy, handsome thing. After that, Claire doesn’t have much choice but to believe that something rivery is going on, especially since she’s the only one who can help Duke lose his new addition. In the tradition of grand river adventures, Joseph Helgerson’s tale is as twisty and unpredictable as the Mississippi River itself, while an unusual cast of characters adds pepper to the pot. Readers of all ages will enjoy getting in—and out of—trouble with Claire and Duke in this nimble, sharp, and funny fantasy.

Very well written and charming children's story. My 2nd and 3rd grader both loved it and I enjoyed it as well. So many contemporary kid's books seem dumbed-down in vocabulary and structure but Horns&Wrinkles is a masterwork of children's fiction. The vocabulary is challenging but not beyond the reach of primary schoolers, the characters are varied and interesting while not being trite, and the plot is involved and engaging and never seems forced.
Unlike so much of contemporary children's entertainment there are no poop jokes. :) And when children misbehave or mouth off to their parents there are consequences. A great story for the whole family.

I feel so mean giving this 3 stars next to all these 5's, but I never really got into this book. It felt kind of made up as it went a long. I am hoping this is just because I'm too old for the book, and that my neice will like it as much as everyone else says they did.

I read this book to my 4 kids (boys 10 and 9, girls 7 and 6). They loved it. My boys then read it for themselves. They all still talk about some of the characters 2 months later. My only problem is they all want me to find other books by the same author--I don't think there are any.

I now know why my local public library (large system) did not have a single copy. Don't waste your money or time!
A standalone fantasy adventure story about two children — one good, and the other, well, not-so-good, in Blue Wing, a little town alongside the Mississippi River, in early May.

My Take
I like Helgerson’s start with the mean Duke and then Claire’s note of the “queer old chunk of water”. That narrative hook pulled me right into Horns & Wrinkles, dying to know what came next in this quirky story as told in first-person protagonist point-of-view from Claire's perspective.

There is a sweetness and innocence to Claire despite her knowing her cousin too well while Duke fits right in with those nasty, too funnily dressed trolls. As for the troll culture Helgerson has dreamed up, wa-a-ay too funny.

”’…“you’re” the snack.’’
Now, wait a minute,’ Duke said, gagging. ‘You guys told me to eat!’
Suddenly all the other rhinos lowered their heads…”

It’s all about bullies and the horrible things that happen to them…and the only way they can change back.

You do have to appreciate Claire’s adventurousness and quickness of thought as she works to stay ahead of this trio of river trolls.

It's absolute nonsense and totally fun!

The Story
How can you tell if a river’s under a spell? River trolls, rock trolls, blue-wing fairies — the usual suspects — the stretch of the Mississippi where Claire lives has rumors of them all, not that she’s ever spotted any.

But then Claire’s cousin Duke takes a swim and sprouts a horn — a long, pointy, handsome thing. After that, Claire doesn’t have much choice but to believe that something rivery is going on, especially since she’s the only one who can help Duke lose his new addition.

The Characters
Claire Bridgewater is twelve years old with a love for rivery animals such as Lottie, her box turtle who lives in the closet and Three, her toad who lives in a wool sock. Tessa is the youngest sister while Lillie is the older and Fragile Fran is the oldest. Mom works at the department store. Dad works the graveyard shift at a bakery. Grandpa Bridgewater comes for the show and tells of the horns their great-great-great-grandpa Huntington Bridgewater and his brother Floyd had had back in the day. Nettie is the girl who became Huntington's wife. Second-cousin Alfie had a run-in with river trolls; Cousin Ernie couldn’t help touching Alfie.

Duke is Claire’s mean young cousin whose parents have finally resorted to discipline. His parents are Norm who runs the No Leash Dog Obedience College and Phyllis who is a school nurse. Duff is their springer spaniel.

Blue Wing is…
…a small town along the Mississippi River. Sheriff Tommy Pope is realistic about the river trolls. Dr. E.O. Moneybaker is the only rhinoceros horn expert in the area and lives in a retirement home. One-shot is a newspaper photographer.

Big Rock is…
…a town where sits Trolls & Things, a shop that sells screens by the old lady in the canoe, a blue-wing fairy with no name who has an older brother. Pumpkin is his retriever. Prince Leopold, a muskrat, and Princess Trudy, a raccoon, are friends of hers. Farmer Bailey’s field is home to the sinkhole.

Stump, Squeak “Biz” (he intends to be King Biz Mossbottom the First, and he’s married to Muck, Weed, and Scale Crowleg, all sisters who can see a day ahead into the future) Mossbottom, and Jim Dandy are river trolls in cahoots with Duke. Two-cents Eel-tongue is Jim’s mother while that no-good Double-knot is his missing father. Fancy Leechlicker is Jim’s sulky wife. Duckwad is Stump’s missing brother. Wishy Gartooth can see into next week, if the pay is good. Great-aunt Tar-and-feathers Slice-Toe, Biz’s relative, owns a stone glove.

Reliable St. John is a cricket.

Bodacious Deepthink, a.k.a., Bo the Great Rock Troll, has terrified the area’s trolls with her obsession with the moon.

The Cover and Title
The cover is soft browns, dark ones and light ones, for it’s night along the Mississippi River with a sliver of moon in the sky, shining down on the river with its islets of grass. It’s the rhino-horned dark-T-shirt-wearing Duke standing back-to-back with the defiant Claire in her red and white horizontally striped top with both staring out of the cover.

The title is a combination of the rhino Horns & Wrinkles in plans and old people caught up.
