Dell Yearling 4/22/2014. New paperback. 2015-16 SC Children's Book Award nominee. Store pick: In a land where names mean everything, 'Rump' isn't what you want to be called. But this incomplete name is all that was heard before Rump's mother died, leaving him to search for his own destiny -- which of course involves spinning straw into gold and bargaining for a girl's first-born child. But this re-telling of Rumpelstiltskin stands out for its imagination and characterization, and readers will be rooting for Rump like they never did for the man in the fairy tale. -Melissa O., store employee

Publisher Description

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 Times "bestselling author of "Fablehaven."
Perfect for fans of "Ella Enchanted" or "A Tale Dark and Grimm."

Price = 6.99 USD
