The Mask“The Mask”
by Clayton Marshall Adams

“The Mask” is an unconventional fairytale about an ugly and misshapen boy who has been abandoned to the forest by his parents when old enough to care for himself. His existence is lonely and sometimes painful, particularly when he encounters bullies from the village who abuse and torment him. His only comfort is sculpting, and he is able to sell some creations to a few villagers who can tolerate his presence.

One day, he makes an astounding discovery. It is a talking mask! It promises him a new life in a world of beauty that he never thought possible. The promise, however, comes with a price. But will the promise be worth the price? “The Mask” earned a star from a Kirkus review and a lightning bolt from BookLife. Purchase at
