Details

The townspeople of Frip make their living raising goats, but they must fight off a daily invasion of gappers, bright orange, many-eyed creatures that cover goats and stop them from giving milk. When the gappers target Capable's goats, the Romos and the Ronsens turn their backs on the gapper-ridden Capable. What will Capable do about her gapper plague? An imaginative tale accented with haunting illustrations, The Very Persistent Gappers of Frip is an adult story for children, a children's story for adults, an oceanside fable for the irremediably landlocked, a fish story for loaves, and a fable about the true meaning of community. 'Saunders's poignant, profound style lifts [The Very Persistent Gappers of Frip] from the zone of the merely weird into some kind of wonderful. -Entertainment Weekly
