Mascott: The Pleasantly Deformed Boy
Scott Martin has the world's largest head. Unlike most deformities, Scott's is quite pleasant and amusing. But being pleasantly deformed is not much better than being hideously deformed in his opinion. Mascott is the story a boy with a head the size of a beach ball and his struggle to feel that he, like those who love and hate him, is human on the inside. After his adoptive parents go missing on their boat, Scott runs away to join the circus with the hopes of finding happiness. Instead he finds a birth mother who blames every problem in her life on him, his childhood bully, and that fame isn't all it's cracked up to be. With the help of the freakshow's fake chicken man, a love who believes they were cursed by witches, and a boss who lives in constant fear of the clowns in his own circus, Scott takes on his biggest fears. This is a story for anyone who has ever felt that they were somehow less human than the rest of the world.
