Publisher Summary

0nce upon a time a miller’s daughter was given an impossible task by a cruel and greedy king. She had to spin straw into gold. And who should show up to help her but an odd little man named Rumpelstiltskin.According to tradition, the gold-bedazzled king and the miller’s daughter are wed. But wait just a minute! This king is definitely not husband material, and there’s someone else who is–a hardworking guy who’s supportive and nice looking, and who really comes through in a pinch.Why not marry Rumpelstiltskin?In Diane Stanley’s merry rethinking of the traditional tale, Rumpelstiltskin and the miller’s daughter are wed…and then sixteen years later their only daughter is stuck in the same dilemma: She’s been locked in a room full of straw to spin for a greedy king! She could call for help from her father, but this fairy-tale heroine has some canny plans of her own.How Rumpelstiltskin’s daughter sets things to rights in the troubled kingdom, while achieving a unique place for herself, makes for a wise and witty tale of kindness and cleverness rewarded. Diane Stanley’s wickedly funny text and zesty illustrations put a delightful new spin on a classic fairy tale.Rumpelstiltskin’s daughter may not be able to spin straw into gold, but she is more than a match for a monarch whose greed has blighted an entire kingdom. 2000-2001 Georgia’s Picture Storybook Award & Georgia’s Children’s Book Award Masterlist01-02 Land of Enchantment Book Award Masterlist (Gr. 3-6) 99-00 Children’s Book Award
