The Ugly Dumpling

illustrated by Shahar Kober 
Mighty Media Press, April 2016

"A bright, multicultural twist on a classic tale. ... Specifically told without gendered pronouns, this is simply a story about love. Kober’s illustrations are characterised by delicious changes in perspective, and Campisi’s sly, humorous asides ensure that the message of identity is not heavy-handed ... Quirky retellings often lean on clever titles alone, but this surpasses and delights."—Kirkus ReviewsStarred Review
