In The Wizard, the Ugly and the Book of Shame, Pablo Bernasconi uses a traditional fairytale structure to tell a witty and poignant story about perceptions of beauty, the importance of self-esteem, and the power of forgiveness. In the author's own words, "I think all my stories show the value of believing in yourself, the courage of finding a way to be comfortable with us, and the idea that difference can be good and should be good."
