Rump’s mother dies before revealing his full name and he is teased and bullied for his unusual half-name. When he discovers an old spinning wheel his luck changes – he can spin straw into gold. Rump’s best friend, Red Riding Hood, warned him that the magical gold may be trouble. An evil spell has been cast on Rump and the only way to break it is to find his true name. He must fight trolls, poison apples, and an evil queen in his quest to break the curse. This debut novel is an inventive and entertaining retelling of the classic fairy tale. Ages 8-11
