The Van Gogh CafÃÂ© is magic. Nobody knows quite how or why, but they all agree that it is. Nobody knows it better than ten-year-old Clara. She helps her dad, Marc, run the cafÃÂ©. Clara knows how much the cafÃÂ© loves stories, and the small stories don't often stay small for long.
To the people in Flowers, Kansas, who have been going to the cafÃÂ© all of their lives, the unbelievable is pretty normal, and the impossible seems quite possible. Anything can happen at the Van Gogh CafÃÂ©.
From lost loves found, to a cat that falls in love with a seagull. From food that cooks itself, to magically multiplying muffins. From prophetic poetry on napkins, to a possum that helps a man find his life again. You never know what you might find at the Van Gogh CafÃÂ©.
I love it!
My only complaint is that it's too short and I want more! My only question is, can I please go visit? Maybe even work there? Oh, that's two questions.
