This funny fractured fairy tale goes behind the scenes of
Rumpelstiltskin. "A most magical feat," writes Newbery Honor-winner
Kirby Larson, "Liesl Shurtliff spins words into gold."
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 Master List Selection, "Rump" is perfect for
fans of Gail Carson Levine's "Ella Enchanted" or Adam Gidwitz's "A
Tale Dark and Grimm."
"""Lighthearted and inventive, "Rump" amusingly expands a classic
tale." --Brandon Mull, #1 "New York Times "bestselling author of
"From the Hardcover edition."
