Straw Into Gold
by Gary D. Schmidt
This is the fourth book by Gary D. Schmidt I have read... and I'm sure I will read more. I have not been disappointed, but have thoroughly enjoyed them all.
This charming story is a retelling of Rumpelstiltskin with a continuation of the story as we know it. It's well-written, fast paced, and clever, with plenty of plot twists and turns, but also sweet and tender. It will appeal to all ages of both genders.
There are a few minor swear words and some mild violence, but really nothing offensive.
Recommended for: Ages 9 to adult
