Re-telling / Fantasy
Date Published: March 3, 2014
Gold for a poor girl,
Beauty for a twisted man,
A child for a powerful sorcerer . . .
Rumpelstiltskin can change anything he touches into gold, but he cannot change
his own twisted body. The sorcerer Laurus can make Rumpelstiltskin tall,
strong, and handsome—but he will only work his magic in exchange for a child in
its first year of life.
When Emily’s deluded father claims she can spin straw into gold, the King
demands proof. Caught between a mad father and a mad king, Emily’s life hangs
in the balance. Rumpelstiltskin will help keep up her ruse for three nights—if
she promises him her firstborn child.
When the King decides to marry Emily, the pretense must continue for much
longer. And what Emily offers Rumpelstiltskin in return for his continued help
has the power to change everything.
This retelling of “Rumpelstiltskin” is best suited for ages 14 and up.
