This funny fractured fairytale goes behind the scenes of Rumpelstiltskin. "A most magical feat," writes Newbery Honor-winner Kirby Larson, "Liesl Shurtliff spins words into gold."
In a magical kingdom where your name is your destiny, 12-year-old Rump is the butt of everyone's joke. But when he finds an old spinning wheel, his luck seems to change. Rump discovers he has a gift for spinning straw into gold. His best friend, Red Riding Hood, warns him that magic is dangerous, and she's right.
With each thread he spins, he weaves himself deeper into a curse. To break the spell, Rump must go on a perilous quest, fighting off pixies, trolls, poison apples, and a wickedly foolish queen. The odds are against him, but with courage and friendship - and a cheeky sense of humor - he just might triumph in the end.
"Lighthearted and inventive,Rump amusingly expands a classic tale." (Brandon Mull, #1 New York Timesbestselling author of Fablehaven.)
Perfect for fans of Ella Enchanted or A Tale Dark and Grimm.

My 10 year old like the book and I did not.
Nice fresh point of view on an old story
I never read it
I wouldn't want to ruin the story for others but I liked that Red could get the honey.
