Strangers Have the Best Candy by Margaret Meps Schulte

If you like the characters you’ve read about on this blog, and you like Meps’ writing, you’re going to love her book, Strangers Have the Best Candy! Available now on Amazon, it’s an illustrated collection of amazing encounters with strangers on the backroads and waterways of the world.

Here are some of the folks you’ll meet in Strangers Have the Best Candy:

  • Carrie, the topless runner who popped out of the woods at Crater Lake carrying a bag of flour
  • Harley and Annabelle, the not-so-mediocre music-makers and stars of Route 66
  • Captain Craig, the self-proclaimed Scourge of Lake Union and Environs and whatever else needs scourging
  • Boopsie, the skinny-dipper and breast cancer survivor who was waiting on her implants
  • Libby, the most Kindred Spirit of all
  • Chicken Pox Man (but you’ll wish you hadn’t)

You’ll learn what really goes into Happy Stew, where to find the Mythical Butter Divide, and why you should always say yes and always take all your stuff.

You’ll learn how talking to strangers leads to a life of crazy adventure and lifelong friendship. Most importantly, you’ll learn how easy it is to get your own candy from strangers and why in the world you would want to.
