Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Magic things happen at the Van Gogh Cafe in Flowers, Kansas. No one quite knows why, but people think it's because the cafe building was once a theater. They figure the walls absorbed enough magic during those years of lights and costumes and opening nights to last forever. Ten-year-old Clara is another reason for the magic. She believes anything might happen — and it always does. Newbery Medalist Rylant breaks new ground in producing this whimsical tale, dexterously weaving extraordinary events into the fabric of ordinary life. As she gently guides her characters toward their magnificent destinies, the strength of her imagination and the depth of her sensitivity will impress even the reluctant reader." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

A beloved tale by Cynthia Rylant—now available in paperback.

Synopsis:

At the Van Gogh Cafe, anything can happen. Clara's dad owns the cafe, and she's seen it all — from food that cooks by itself to poems that foretell the future. This award-winning collection of vignettes by Newbery medalist Cynthia Rylant is a treat to be relished. So bring your appetite for the unexpected, because at the Van Gogh Cafe, your order of tea and toast comes with a side of magic!
