This funny fractured fairy tale goesbehind the scenes of Rumpelstiltskin. "New York Times" Bestselling author Liesl Shurtliff "spins words into gold [Kirby Larson, Newbery Honor winner]." In a magic 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. A Texas Bluebonnet finalist and winner of the ILA award for middle grade fiction, "Rump" is perfect for fans of Gail Carson Levine's "Ella Enchanted"or Adam Gidwitz's "A Tale Dark and Grimm." And don't miss Liesl Shurtliff's other fairy tale retellings: "Jack: The True Story of Jack and the Beanstalk" and "Red: The True Story of Red Riding Hood."
