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. From the Hardcover edition.

Liesl Shurtliff has a great imagination that draws the reader or listener into the story of Rumpelstiltskin from his viewpoint, evoking sympathy from the audience for Rumpelstiltskin's plight.

Rumpelstiltskin's mother passed away soon after he was born, leaving him with a whispered name, (names were carefully chosen because they were believed to determine a person's destiny). Unfortunately, those around only heard the first portion of his name, and he was known as Rump. When he is twelve years old, he learns of a magical ability he possesses shortly before his grandmother passes away, and hides the possession of this ability from her. After his grandmother passes away, Rumpelstiltskin finds himself in a precarious position as the repercussions of using his magical ability begin to surface. In a quest to learn his destiny, he embarks on a journey that unfolds a number of surprising elements.

A beautifully woven and well-read alternative fairy tale threading elements of the book series and of the usual fairy tale to make the story into a not-so-usual tale.
