Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“I will give you three days,” the little man said. “If by the end of that time you find out my name, then you shall keep your child.”

 

When the miller tells the king that his daughter can spin straw into gold, the king locks her up to await his treasure. Soon after, a strange little man appears to help her carry out her impossible task, but she must barter her few possessions to appease him. She finally promises him something most precious, and years later, when she least expects it, he comes back to claim his due.

Paul Galdones characteristically fluid storytelling brings new life to this familiar high-stakes tale. A delightful new cover with gold foil accents makes this book an ideal gift.

Paul Galdones striking retelling and spirited illustrations give new life to Grimms classic tale of a strange little man who helps the millers daughter spin straw into gold. This addition to the Folk Tale Classics series has an enchanting new cover and is sure to please readers of all ages.

About the Author

Paul Galdone was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1907 and emigrated to the United States in 1928. After finishing his studies at the Art Student League and the New York School of Industrial Design, Mr. Galdone worked in the art department of a major publishing house. There he was introduced to the process of bookmaking, an activity that was soon to become his lifelong career. Before his death in 1986, Mr. Galdone illustrated almost three hundred books, many of which he himself wrote or retold. He is fondly remembered for his contemporary style, bright earthy humor, and action-filled illustrations, which will continue to delight for generations to come.
