“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly post, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine , where we spotlight a book we are anxiously waiting to be published.
Rump: The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin
By Liesl Shurtliff
Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf Book for Young Readers
Release Date: April 9, 2013
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.
An inventive fairytale retelling, perfect for fans of Gail Carson Levine or Shannon Hale.
I have never read a story from the point of view of Rumpelstiltskin so this should be unique. Normally he’s the bad guy. I love that his friend is Red Riding Hood. This sounds like an exciting adventurous Middle Grade read! The cover is fantastical too!

You're right, we never really read books from Rumpelstiltskin's point of view. Plus, I always find twists on fairy tales quite interesting. Great pick!
Thanks for stopping by on my blog! 🙂 Happy reading.

Oh definitely! I hope my 6 year old will let me start reading chapter books to him soon. His attention span is almost there. Your book sounds thrilling! I just added it to my goodreads. I'll have to feature it on a WoW.
