Waiting on Wednesday: Rump: The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

This week I’m waiting on: Rump: The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin



In a magical kingdom where your name is your destiny, 12-year-old Rump is the butt of everyone’s joke.

Rump has never known his full name—his mother died before she could tell him. So all his life he’s been teased and bullied for his half-a-name. But when he finds an old spinning wheel, his luck seems to change. For Rump discovers he can spin straw into gold. Magical gold.

His best friend Red Riding Hood warns him that magic is dangerous—and she’s right! That gold is worth its weight in trouble. And with each thread he spins, Rump weaves himself deeper into a curse.

There’s only one way to break the spell: Rump must go on a quest to find his true name, along the way defending himself against pixies, trolls, poison apples, and one beautiful but vile-mannered queen. The odds are against him, but with courage and friendship—and a cheeky sense of humor—Rump just might triumph in the end.

Doesn’t that sound awesome?! Okay, I might be a bit biased because I am a total sucker for fairy tale retellings.

  1. I am definitely excited to read Rump. It looks like a lot of fun, and since I watched a few episodes of Once Upon a Time, Rumplestiltskin has become a bit more fascinating to me.
