Horns and Wrinkles

River trolls, rock trolls, fairies, crickets, and curses combine to form a clever and enchanting story in Joseph Helgerson's Horns and Wrinkles. Set along a northern stretch of the Mississippi River, the novel follows Claire, a young girl constantly bullied by her cousin Duke.

Claire has always heard stories about a spell upon the river causing strange "rivery" occurrences, but she didn't know the truth to the legends until Duke sprouted a strange - and constantly growing - horn. Claire also never anticipated helping Duke nor enlisting the aid of river trolls to do so.

Horns and Wrinkles was a charming and creative book. The mix of magic and mythology with a local flair made the tale unique and enjoyable - a fun story for readers of all ages.
